2. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation Parham Farhadpoor | 0313698 | Group w | FNBE April 2013 | Taylors University 2 Introduction The final project of elements of natural and built environment for this course (FNBE) is all about elements of a city for the future and the situations that will happen in few years later makes us to think about building new cities, and different from the cities that we are living in currently. In this project students are required to imagine that the year is 2033 and they are the mayor of the X city (they are required to choose a name for the city). They as mayors know a secret about the city and they know that the city is no longer safe to live in, so they have to prepare a proposal for the new city. First, students need to create a situation for their city which make it not safe to live, and then find the best solution to build a new city depend on the problem . They have five options, they can build city underground, underwater, floating on water or enhance the city and after they choose the option. They have to start research, sketches, etc to prepare the proposal of the city and after that students must choose one city within their units and make a model of it and present it to lecturers. This project acquaints students with elements of natural and built environment and they understand how to analyze different situation and symbiotic relationships that they need to consider in natural and built environment. 3.

Cities generally have complex systems for sanitation, utilities, land usage, housing, and transportation. The concentration of development greatly facilitates communication between people and businesses, benefiting both parties in the process. A big city or metropolis usually has associated suburbs and exurbs. Such cities are usually related with metropolitan areas and urban areas, creating various business commuters traveling to urban centers for employment. Once a city grows far enough to reach another city, this region can be believed a conurbation or megalopolis. History: towns and cities has very long history, since humans understood that they need each other, but there are many different opinions on whether any particular ancient settlement can be considered to be a city. Different cities formed as center places to benefit members living close proximity to others facilitates interaction of all kinds by trading. The first true towns started shaping 4. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation Parham Farhadpoor | 0313698 | Group w | FNBE April 2013 | Taylors University 4 when they became places which people were not simply farmers and they began to take on specialized occupations, trade, food storage, and power was centralized, then they started growing and became cities. Elements of urban design: involves the design and coordination of all that makes up cities and towns. Building: buildings are the most pronounced elements of urban design, they shape and articulate space by forming the street walls of the city. Public space: great public spaces are the living room of the city, the place where people come together to enjoy the city and each other. Streets: streets are the connection between spaces and places, as well as being space themselves. Transport: transport system connect the parts of the cities and help shape them, and enable movement throughout the city. Landscape: the landscape is the green part of the city that weaves throughout in the form of urban parks, street trees, plants, flowers, and water in many forms. Urban designs weave together these elements into a coherent, organized design structure. The urban design structure defines the urban form and the building form. The creative articulation of space is the most prominent aspect for urban design. The following artistic principles are an integral part of creating form and spatial definition: 1.Order 2.Unity 3.Balance 4.Proportion 5.Scale 6.Hierarchy 7.Symmetry 8.Rhythm 9.Contrast 10.Context 11.Detail 12.Texture 13.Harmony 14.Beauty 5.

Technological system supports processes from planning through construction, operation, and evaluation in a uniform manner. Autonomous disclosure of resource information and accommodation between systems work to maintain the sustainability of society as a whole. System development technology requirements differ over the three stages of planning. Advanced IT support is needed for the realization of each type of systems development technology. Mobility Making transportation as a mean of reaching your destination fun, stress-free, and comfortable. Six problems that must be resolved by smart mobility: 1.congestion problem 2.vuluerable road user problem 3.eco problem 4.deterioration problem 5.disaster planning problem 6.transportation company efficiency improvement problem Coordination of infrastructure Due to technological progress, urbane and service infrastructures are growing more diverse, and the number of situations where information can be utilized in increasing. 6. ENBE | Final Project | Part A Report | The Future City Representation Parham Farhadpoor | 0313698 | Group w | FNBE April 2013 | Taylors University 6 Coordination of infrastructures is required to resolve issues related to organization, usage, and environmental load associated with infrastructures. Cost of usage is reduced while convenience and comfort are improved. City managers also enjoy benefits such as improved reliability and increased business opportunities. Communications Many of requirements demanded of a smart city are realized through seamless coordination. More enjoyment and convenience through a network with dependable security Businesses can be realized by connecting to the network. System efficiency is pursued from the network design stage by giving consideration to energy consumption. The network can be utilized in order to visualize the state of energy usage in real time. It platform Coping with diversity. Satisfying demand for reliability. Coping with growth of cities and long- term sustainability. Water Sources of fresh water that can be used by humans amount to a more 0.01% of all water in the world. Intake increases greatly with the growing population, making water shortages even more serious. Energy Limited energy must be utilized effectively as demand for electric power increases. Smart grids are one valid measure to improve the efficiency utilization while reducing CO2 emissions. Different regions have different background behind the necessity of smart grids. 7.

At first a wall collapsed and they found a passage way which led them to an underground city thousands of years old and more than 280 feet deep. This city has 13 stories with ventilation shafts as well as 1500 little shafts making sure that every chamber gets air. This underground city is able to hold more than 20,000 people and contains religious centers, store rooms, wine presses, schools, a bar, kitchens, and stables. The stone used is extremely soft, so all the supporting beams had to be placed perfectly and it has never had any caves ins. This would be an extremely difficult thing to do in modern time let alone thousands of years ago. The religion of the city is said to be Zoroastrian. The creator which called Ahura Mazda. Who is the sky god, asked one of his prophets to build an underground city to protect select people and animals from a global ice age. This is the most probable answer that archeologists found, but they also have many answers about the incredible underground city and still nobody finds the definitive answer. The most wondering issue about this ancient underground city is that how they could build a city underground thousand years ago, but the only thing that we can be sure about is that they built a city underground to protect themselves but we still dont know why? Did extraterrestrials cause them to build a city underground? Global ice age? Or to protect from invading enemies such as desert raiders or Roman legion? 8.
