2. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation 1.Introduction The idea of this project is to understand the component and elements of a town and what makes a better livable future town. We will have to pretend that we are the mayor of the X Town. The people in X town require a new town because of reasons that it is too crowded. We will need to propose a new layout for the new X Town very quickly. We are required to do the followings to understand the meaning of a town, its development, history, components, elements and what makes a better livable town. Investigation, collect data and understand the type of town that our group have selected. Look into documents, article, guideline and issues regarding planning a better future towns.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation A town is a human settlement larger than a village but smaller than a city. The size definition for what constitutes a "town" varies considerably in different parts of the world. Townships range in size from 6 to 54 square miles (15.6 km to 140.4 km), with 36 square miles (93 km) being the norm. The word town shares an origin with the German word Zaun, the Dutch word tuin, and the Old Norse tun. In English and Dutch, the meaning of the word took on the sense of the space which these fences enclosed. In England, a town was a small city that could not afford or was not allowed to build walls or other larger fortifications, and built a palisade or stockade instead. Town also provide a variety of services to their inhabitants, including sanitation, roads, utilities, transportation and food distribution.Town have a less denser population than the city, with a population that does not grow its own food.

Use the landscape to your advantage,improve the town.Use only one architectural style per town, this is imperative to the final look of your project. Every town or area should have at least one commanding (large and more importantly beautiful) building or group of buildings (that should be on the same street), they can be a mosque, town hall or whatever suits. The layout, shape/form of buildings, colour that define the YAN WAI CHUN | 0319626| Pn Hasmanira| FNBE APR 2014 | Taylors University 5 6. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation town ,texture, and also space/perspective on how the town is built are also important. Principles to built a town: Pattern (style of builidings) Rhythm/Movement (How easily the town can be navigated without a map) Proportion/Scale (Fitting the city to a proper size) Balance (How effective the city building layout is) Unity (How well the city seems to relate to itself) Emphasis (Emphasize buildings to have them stand out) 3.Investigation & Data Collection: Ancient Cities / towns YAN WAI CHUN | 0319626| Pn Hasmanira| FNBE APR 2014 | Taylors University 6 7. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation GOZO Gozo has been inhabited since 5000 BC, when farmers from nearby Sicily crossed the sea to the island.Due to the discovery of similar pottery found in both places from the Gar Dalam phase, it has been suggested that the first colonists were specifically from the area of Agrigento; however, it is currently indeterminate exactly which part of Sicily the farmers came from. They are thought to have first lived in caves on the outskirts of what is now known as Saint Lawrence. Gozo (off the coast of Italy) Gozo was an important place for cultural evolution, and during the neolithic period the gantija temples were built; they are the world's oldest free-standing structures, as well as the world's oldest religious structures. The temple's name is Maltese for "belonging to the giants", because legend in Maltese and Gozitan folklore says the temples were built by giants. Ggantija Temple For such a town on a small island, has a population of around 31,000 people and it is rich in historic locations/ oldest free-standing structures and are also among the world's oldest religious structures.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation Maybe the element that I can use is the architecture of buildings in GOZO. 4. Investigation & Data Collection: Present Towns / township Monte Carlo Founded in 1866, Monte Carlo has a name of Italian origin meaning "Mount Charles", in honor of the then-reigning prince, Charles III of Monaco. The specific mountain is the escarpment at the foot of the Maritime Alps on which the town stands.The quarter of Monte Carlo was served by tramways from 1900 to 1953, linking all parts of Monaco (see transportation in Monaco). In 2003 a new cruise ship pier was completed in the harbour at Monte Carlo. Monte Carlo in Monaco (Ward shown) With more than 300 days a year of sunshine, residents in Monaco can take advantage of the Mediterranean, and all of its seaside activities. Monte Carlo is host to most of the Circuit de Monaco, on which the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix takes place. It also hosts world championship boxing bouts, the European Poker Tour Grand Final and the World Backgammon Championship as well as fashion shows and other events.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation Circuit de Monaco Monte Carlo Casino Monte Carlo is one of Europe's leading tourist resorts, although many of the key tourist destinations are located in other parts of Monaco. Maybe I will add more features like Monte Carlo had in my new town.e.g. sports stadium, recreation places, race track etc. 5.Investigation & Data Collection: The future of towns and Better Towns Treasure Island Treasure Island, an upclose view of the proposed sustainable development plan and a not so shabby panoramic view of the whole San Francisco Bay Area. We found that the entire place is steeped in future plans and the island is a keystone in what will become a center for green living in the Bay. We also got an eye full of the temporary Bay Bridge span, which was impressively being connected to the existing bridge over the weekend. Meanwhile, curious ones like us piled into a shuttle and explored the flat shoals of Treasure Island. Together YAN WAI CHUN | 0319626| Pn Hasmanira| FNBE APR 2014 | Taylors University 9 10. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation we squinted at the view, meandered through the parking lots, and gazed into what could be the developed future of the flat manmade island an educational urban farm, a ferry building to mirror the one in San Franciscos Embarcadero, and a wastewater treatment plant framed by wetlands. Housing on the island will be a varied set of townhouses, stacked flats, mid- rises, neighborhood towers, and high rises, with units for different income levels all mixed together. On the city side of the island these blocks will be connected with pedestrian mews, landscaped common pathways. On the east side, a linear park will run down the center of the neighborhood leading straight to the retail center. 6.The New X Town / The New NAME? ZERUS Ive done research about future town and buildings. Ive seen many future or modern architecture style of buildings in Dubai. So I came up with the ideas of using the same architecture style and the materials for the buildings in this new town.Besides,I can take some informations from the research on Monte Carlo and Gozo,such as architecture buildings and features to include in my future towns plan.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation Graphene building Graphene Future building In this new town ,there are many ideas of adding sports and recreation facilities for public use , including adventure centres, community centres, indoor sports centres, swimming pools, resorts, sports grounds and stadiums. Squares , gardens and farming areas will be installed in a less concentrated area.The purpose to doing so is to give the people in this new town an opportunity to walk around and not just focus on the concentrated area. Farming area is for the food production in this new town. YAN WAI CHUN | 0319626| Pn Hasmanira| FNBE APR 2014 | Taylors University 11 12. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Better Livable Town Representation Farming area Future square In this future town you will find a more sustainable public transport system. Low cost public transport will be provided in order to reduce the negative impact towards the environment of this new town.Bus stations and train stations will increase in the concentrated area and become less in residential area. The population in ZERUS is 120,000 Malaysian.ZERUS is a town on an man made island .Housing in this new town will be a varied set of townhouses, stacked flats, mid-rises, neighborhood towers, and high rises, with units for different income levels all mixed together. Safety of the people in ZERUS will be put in the first place. Every one who enters or exit this new town will be
