  • 3. 1.Introduction * (Describe the project brief, the things that you have to do etc + how does it relate to the subject. Max 3 paragraphs, not more that 150 words.) In the final ENBE project, students must replace an old „X‟-city that is too harsh for people to inhabit in, to a new city in different environments such as: underwater, underground, rebuild the old city, floating on water or air. In the process students must learn what and what makes a city, research and investigate on cities in different phases in time (past, present & future) while giving reasons for the different facilities added in order to construct the new „X‟-city. This project relates to the subject by letting students understand, explore & investigate on the characteristics of a built environment, including how it would sustain itself & the needs in the city, It also differentiates students to the different development in a built environment such as spaces, landscape & infrastructure. In general, it helps students observe the built environment by creating one.
  • 4. 2.The City (Describe the definition, your findings and information on what is a city, what makes a good city etc) 2.1 The City Definition 2.2 What is the brief history 2.3 What makes a city 2.4 What makes a good city 2.5 What is the future city 2.6 Etc
  • 5. 3.Investigation & Data Collection: Ancient Cities (Describe and layout your findings and the conclusion 1-2 cities preferably almost similar to your selected future city) 3.1 When did it start? History and all 3.2 What ancient city are you concentrating on? 3.3 What makes it a significant city and what are the details? 3.4 Conclusion about the cities 3.5 What information or element that you can use to your new future city 3.6 Etc
  • 6. 3.3 What makes it a significant city? -The city is situated inside the lake, with a huge dam around them to prevent the water from coming in. -The city is BELOW sea level thanks to this mechanism -Why is it in the middle of the lake? For people from outside the country to access the capital city easily, most transportation at that time are wooden boats The city is also where the king, the priest and other royal subjects reside for people to confront -The city is also properly planned, zoned and placed -The buildings and facilities in the city are such as 1. the Palace where King Seuth III and his royal subjects reside, 2. a church for the priest with 3. a small cemetery where ONLY the King and his royal families can be buried in, this is also where King Seuth‟s tomb is found and how archaeologist found out he s the founder of the city
  • 7. -The people of the city also created harbors for the people of Thrace to go to the city by boat, the people from the city go to the harbor by stairs from the bottom to the top of the dam 3.4 Conclusion about the ancient city -Even if the ancient city of Seuthoolis is a small city, it is a unique city, nowhere in history would we have a city under sea level, the huge dam also gave so much work for the people. -Unfortunately the city sunk due to damage to the dam, causing flooding on the whole city, in 1948, it was discovered and excavated but it was still at the bottom of the lake, in 2005, the people of Bulgaria is encouraged to preserve the city and give the ancient city the title as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO so they would have to reconstruct the dam. 3.5 What information can I use for my future city -The city is surrounded by a huge dam, which in ancient times, is used for protection & accessibility, however in the modern times, another component can be added, energy. Tidal energy uses dams & the difference in high & low tides from the two different sides of the dam. Energy for my future city turns into an essential element, although non-renewable energy sources are drawing of the palace in the city The city in ruins in 1948 Planning on preserving the city
  • 8. unacceptable since the city would be proposed as an eco-friendly city, therefore, tidal energy, which is a renewable source of energy is a great way to make another use for the huge dams that also hold objects on them.
  • 9. 4.Investigation & Data Collection: Present Cities (Describe and layout your findings and the conclusion 1-2 cities preferably almost similar to your selected future city) 4.1 When did it start? History and all 4.2 What city are you concentrating on? 4.3 What makes it a significant city and what are the details? 4.4 Conclusion about the cities 4.5 What information or element that you can use to your new future city 4.6 Etc
  • 10. 5.Investigation & Data Collection: Future Cities (Describe and layout your findings and the conclusion 1-2 cities preferably almost similar to your selected future city) 5.1 When did it start? History and all 5.2 What city are you concentrating on? 5.3 What makes it a significant city and what are the details? 5.4 Conclusion about the cities 5.5 What information or element that you can use to your new future city 5.6 Etc
  • 11. 5.1When did it start? History and all. Touted as an eco-friendly floating city, the Seascraper (pictured in an artist's conception) is among a raft of concepts for sustainable offshore settlements. With more than seven billion people on the planet, mass migrations to cities, and increased risks of flooding and sea level rise, more and more architects and innovators seem to be weighing anchor. 5.1 What city are you concentrating on? The Seascraper, 5.2 What makes is a significant city and what are the details? This city will have the community of homes, offices and recreational space, this city was design to help in slowing down urban sprawl. The vessel's energy independence would come from underwater turbines powered by deep-sea currents as well as from a photovoltaic skin that could collect solar energy. The concave hull would collect rainwater and allow daylight to reach lower levels. Fresh water would come from treated and recycled rainwater via an onboard desalination plant. This green machine would also help keep marine populations afloat, so to speak, with a buoyant base that serves as a reef and discharges fish food in the form of nutrients pumped from the deep sea, the U.S. design team says. 5.3 Conclusion about the cities. It a very good city, it will help in slowing down the urban sprawl and give human a new experience of living. The city also avoids using energy that can produce
  • 12. pollution such as diesel. The city‟s green machine is a really good eco-friendly machine. 5.4 What information or element that you can use to your new future city? The technologies, the energy of the city, using solar energy and water turbines to get electricity. And also their water supply, they have their water supply from rainwater and fresh water from treated and recycled rainwater.
  • 13. 6 The “X” City (describeand explain what happen to the “X” City and what are the things that is required in the new future city) 6.1 When did it start? History and all 6.2 Who are the people, population religion etc 6.3 What are their cultural, needs, type of jobs 6.4 What would be a good future city for them? 6.5 Conclusion about the X city 6.6 Etc
  • 14. 6.1 When did it start? History? -The “X” City started construction 15th November 2018 and finished at 21st December 2021 situated near a river, but it is still considered a „town‟ at that time -The town only started out with: A few skyscrapers, no unique landmarks whatsoever, Most buildings are small homes for people to live in, There are a few offices, Only one hospital which is small, Bad industrialism with a slow economy growth, Garbage removal by landfill to the river near the city, People travel by cars and other motor vehicles, The energy received is by nuclear energy & oil and gas Only a few plants and vegetation can be seen -As time pass by, more and more people started to move into the town, which led to its inscription as a city: Homes are demolished to make apartment buildings and hotels, Buildings grouped in a nucleated pattern, City stretched out for more buildings to be constructed Some of the people who came into the city are drug dealers, robbers and other criminals who increase the rate in crime City‟s economy is doomed Huge landfill in the river caused water pollution Nuclear, oil & gas factories started polluting the air Traffic congestion Most people started using masks outside due to presence of smog Trees & plants die due to toxic water, no vegetation can be seen at all
  • 15. 6.2 The People, Population, Religion, etc. -At the beginning, the people of the city are MOSTLY workers from the Nuclear, Oil & Gas factory that charged up the city, A FEW are workers from the few office buildings in the city, SOME of the people who lived in the small houses work outside the city in nearby towns or villages -Over time, people started to move into the city, which would be crowded of: PEOPLE FROM THE CONSTRUCTION TEAM who I hired as the mayor to build more buildings, a school, hotels, and other skyscrapers for the people to have a place to live & a place to work in CRIMINALS such as drug dealers and robbers who came into the city because of its lack of safety & security WORKERS from the Energy factory & other office buildings newly constructed FAMILIES in apartment buildings
  • 16. 0 50000 100000 150000 200000 2021 2026 2030 Population of "X" City 2021-2030 Population of "X" City 2021-2030 6.3 Their cultural, needs & types of jobs After the year 2026, it is obvious that the needs of the people of „X‟-city is to eradicate the problems faced, such as: A healthy environment for families and children to live in, with fresh air and clean water. A park or plain space for people such as families & friends to have an outing together and entertain themselves, this is prevented due to the many construction projects ongoing & completed. A better safety & security system to prevent crimes in the city The majority of jobs for the people in „X‟-city are: Power plant workers – due to the fact that the nuclear, oil & gas power plants are near to the city Construction workers – from the construction industry due to the greed of the mayor to build more buildings & skyscrapers to gain the city a reputation around the world In-office workers – there are a lot of office buildings in the city, therefore companies take the chance of it‟s vacancy. 6.4 What would be a good city for them? -A good city for the people would be an environmentally friendly city, a city far away from the many types of pollution and sustain itself by preventing them. -The city would also contain a lot of green areas for a fresh air that would recover the people who suffered from the pollution of „X‟-city. -The sustainability of the city must also be prioritized to help the people -After 2021, the population of the city increased as more residential and office buildings are built over time -In 2027, criminals started moving into the city while the factories, traffic congestion, and garbage landfill started polluting the air and water, this caused a decrease in the population
  • 17. 6.5 Conclusion „X‟-city in conclusion might be the most polluted city yet, with poor sustainability actions, moreover, crime rates also effect the people living there. This all came because of un-environmental actions from the mayor such as: 1. Letting the use of Nuclear, oil & gas as the source of energy, moreover, letting the power plants be dangerously close to the city 2. Building more & more building which resulted in the demolition of forests and public spaces The city is a perfect example for what would happen if eco-friendly actions were ignored in the city.
  • 18. 7 The New “X” City / The New NAME? (describe the new facilities, characters etc of the new city…. Insert information realted to the brief “Part A iii C”) 7.1 How did you came up with the solution to create this new city 7.2 Why is it on air etc 7.3 What is the important characteristic and elements 7.4 Etc… “Part A iii C” 7.5 Conclusion about the new X city 7.6 Etc
  • 19. 7.1 How I came up to the idea I tried to think of a city that would: 1. Prevent the mistakes that would gradually affect the tragedy 2. Improve or add the missing components from the old city 3. Prevent the air pollution & make a city with fresh air 4. Create an eco-friendly city, along with getting every energy source required to the city from natural sources, obtaining natural source energy in any ways possible 7.2 Why is it underwater? Initially it was a floating city since a floating city in the middle of the ocean would fit number 3 of my list but after some time I realized the mechanism of a floating city would affect how we obtain the energy source. Since I don‟t want to waste ideas, I brainstormed on how I still can use some information from the city and put it in another environment, I then decided it to be underwater, which is closely related to floating, I took the past information of putting different domes and connecting them with tubes where these separate domes were to be used for sustainability. Contained in a dome underwater is a great way to contain oxygen so that it would recover the victims of the old city who suffered diseases such as asthma due to the air pollution. 7.3 Important characteristics & element 1. Dome/capsule – used to contain the city and prevent water to come in 2. Tube – that connects to the city, either towards/fro the factories for sustainability or to connect to the surface 3. Helipad & Harbors – the way of transport to the city is by helicopter or boat, these ways of transport need a place to land the people 4. Elevators – Not just used to transport people down to the city from the helipad/harbor ports, it also acts as a place to get a great view of the city since the elevator is moving through the radius of the city from a high altitude.
  • 20. 5. Energy factory & Trees – this place is essential for energy, it has a dam and in within the dam there are solar panels, wind turbine & water turbine, all used for energy and connected to the city below 6. Usage of cars that don‟t emit gases & electromagnetic cars – After some research, there are such cars that would not emit gas which runs on electromagnetism so the roads will be made of electromagnet 7. Monument – located at the city square, it is a statue of a destroyed city which represents the old „X‟-city that would remind people of their mistakes of not being eco-friendly at their time in the old city 7.5 Conclusion about Oceanlife city Oceanlife city is not just a place for the evacuation of the old X-city folks, but it also resembles an eco-friendly city, the plan isn‟t to build a replacement city, but a better city, in this case, it has a better environment, better energy source & a better place for families and children. The new city hopes to eradicate the behavior of people who ignores the importance of nature in our environment, these people can also be from people outside of the city through tourism
  • 21. 8 The Process & Progress (organized documents of weekly research and tutorial sketches or findings scan it in or insert the original documents)
  • 22. 9 Conclusion (describe what was important and others should follow or perhaps should know and what did you learned) Max 3 paragraph..not more that 150 words In conclusion, the importance of the overall project is that people should be more eco-friendly to the environment & prevent pollution as it would affect the reputation of the city but most importantly the health of the people, people should know that hurting mother nature, causes many bad side-effects that would be devastating to the environment, they should know nature is part of our daily lives and must be cooperated along with the built environments. I always knew the natural environment could coexist with the built environment, but I never knew we couldn‟t live without it, I decided the old city to have no green areas at all to show that without nature, the city would be devastated & would have so many problems that was caused by it.
