The development of settlements in riparian areas, particularly along riverbanks, poses significant challenges to environmental sustainability. Such areas often transform into slum settlements characterized by sporadic, organic, and unplanned development. The choice of foundation for buildings in these areas is not only an environmental sustainability issue but also concerns socio-economic aspects and the safety of the inhabitants. A quantitative study conducted along the Musi River in Palembang aimed to inventory the number of houses with wooden and concrete foundations, as well as to understand the local community's preferences for their home foundations. Out of 433 housing units surveyed, the majority, 344 units, were found to utilize wooden foundations, while the remaining 89 units had concrete foundations. Although a portion of homeowners chose to maintain the use of wood, nearly half were considering transitioning to concrete foundations, largely driven by perceptions of strength and resistance to waves. However, economic factors were a primary consideration, with indications that concrete is durable and requires low maintenance. Therefore, the use of concrete foundations in riparian homes necessitates in-depth research to ensure that home construction is not only economical but also safe and sustainable.
