ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 1.Introduction In this project, the city that I am living is no livable. Thus, I, as a mayor of X city, will have to propose new city layout in order for the people to survive. Initially, student will have to choose a new setting for the city. The city can be an underground city, a floating on the water city, a floating in the sky city or further improvise the current city. For this, I have decided to create a city which floats on the water. Before designing the layout of the new city, students are required to do a research about the ancient cities, present cities and the future cities. In the research, we will learn about how the people in the past build a city, how the city performs as well as learning the mistake from them. After gathering all the information needed, we will start to design and create a sustainable new future city for the people.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation This aims of this project are to expose the elements of natural and built environment and to show the symbiotic relationship of the elements. Students will learn and understand what makes a great future city. Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 4 5.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 2.1 A City Definition Cities have been called the highest forms of social organizations which include road systems, transportation, building laws, markets, food distribution and education systems. It is the result of long years of human development. People moved to cities for jobs as cities provide a lot of job opportunities and increases income. Each city has its own specialty to define themselves. Some cities use physical attributes: only an area that is developing consistently. Other cities include nearby settlements because the population and economy. Cities provide us essential things to survive such as shelter, food and water. Besides the essentials, cities should also provide us infrastructure. Electricity needs electric lines, water needs plumbing to supply water to the whole city, cars and buses need roads to move, schools need buildings and so on. Cities serve as centers of storage, trade, and manufacture. Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 6 7. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation However, there are two sides on the city, positive and negative. As a city planner, we should try to improve the negative side of the city at the same time enhancing the positive side of city such as affordable housing and land, enhance public services and tackle the plight of slum-dwellers. 2.2 The brief history of city Due to the evolution of urbanization over the years, many cities had been developed throughout the years but at the same time some have fallen due to reasons such as natural disaster, human war and so on. Some disappeared altogether and are now no more than the sites of archeological digs. For example, Moenjodaro in Pakistan. The early stage of development of cities began around four thousand B.C. Settlements, which developed along the rivers Tigris and Euphrates in Mesopotamia, the Nile in Egypt, the Ganges in India and the Yellow River in China. The early cities were mostly developed along the river where the citizens have permanent supply of food and water. They also could pasture land for raising animals. The second stage of development of cities would be the industrial revolution. At this stage, two significant factors contributed to the rapid changes in the size and lifestyles of cities. Firstly, the development of large- scale manufacturing. Second factor was the expansion of trade routes and access to cheap raw materials acquired through European colonization of other lands. The last stage would be the global urban growth. As the global population increases, the percentage of people being urbanized also increases. Some cities in the developing world have increased tremendously in size over the past 45 years. Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 7 8. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 2.3 What makes a city A city provides basic necessity to human. A city fulfills needs of human. These are what make a city : 1. Centers of storage, trade and manufacture 2. Protection and safety 3. Centers of government 4. Evolution of human culture: the arts, scientific research, and technical innovation 5. Centers of communication 6. Complex hierarchy of transportation channels 7. Networks of utilities 8. Public infrastructure 9. Buildings (Residential, commercial, industrial) 10.Open spgoodaces 11.Basic amenities 2.4 What makes a good city A good city is a city which is sustainable and minimizes the usage of energy and wastes. A good city deals with the problems which exist in the city. A good city not only provides essential things for human, but also provides things that ensure the continuation of city life. 1. Walkable city with large footpaths and comfortable walkways Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 8 9. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 2. Automobile independent where roads are full of taxis and public transports instead of private vehicles. 3. Great public open green spaces where human contact is maximum. 4. Affordable housing for all citizens. 5. Safe and secure environments which allow human activities. 6. Better quality of life. 7. Availability of job opportunities for more incomes 8. Accessibility of cultural and social amenities. 9. Waste as resource and is recycled 10.Strong community links in working together to deal with social issues. 2.5 What is the future city From what we undergo now , the era is getting more urbanized and technology is getting more advanced by day. It is hard to predict what the future of the city is, but based on the current development, the future city will be a more advanced city. It may be a car-free city where everywhere is accessible and walkable at the same time surrounded by green space which eases the citizens. Just like China which is creating a totally car-free city from scratch. The city will use 48% less energy and 58% less water than a more conventional city of the same size. Or a city which features a public rapid transit system like Masdar, Abu Dhabi- the worlds first zero-carbon, zero waste city. Besides, it may also be a floating agricultural and industrial city which provides safe housing too. For me, I would like a city which is constructed with green buildings, more green spaces and a city which pollution is minimized.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 3 Investigation & Data Collection: Ancient City: Venice, Italy Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 10 11. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 1. The Brief History Venice was founded in 421 AD on March 25th . Step by step, Venice was built on several islands of lagoon, then linked by bridges. Venice is spreading its commercial boundaries: in 1000 its fleet defeats the pirates of the Adriatic sea. Then Venice takes part to the Crusades, the war campaigns aimed to free Jerusalem. For Venice, this is a business opportunity and expansion chance. Many works of art are taken to Venice as booty. In 1348, Venice population is halved by the plague. In spite, Venice succeeds in becoming the leader of 4 seapowers of Mediterranean Sea. Due to the 2nd World War, the artistic activities in Venice are interrupted. Fortunately, during the 2nd World War, Venice was not bombed: both sides respected the most gorgeous city on earth. On 4 November 1966, disaster struck: record floods poured into 16,000 Venetian homes, stranding residents in the wreckage of 1400 years of civilization.Fire at Teatro La Fenice, totally destroyed in 1996. The trial is still going on, and reconstruction was stopped several times. It was re-opened n 2004. Low En Huey | 0317889 | Group: Ms Ida| FNBE Feb 2014 | Taylors University 11 12. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation 2. Details of the city The original harbor was surrounded by walled defenses and contained the St. Zachary monastery and ducal palace along with the basilica of St. Mark. The bustling market present in Rialto was marked by its entrance, a bridge painted by Carpaccio, which was replaced by a stone arch in the late 15th century. The first streets of Venice were made of
