  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 1.Introduction This is the final project of Elements of Natural and Built Environment. Our lecturers had sent us an important message which is based on this project. According to this project, the current city is not safe to live in (apocalypse). So, the FNBE students are required to use their strategies and ideas to rebuild a new ‘X’ city which is livable to sustain the city which is in apocalypse. It is also important to understand the factors of apocalypse, what makes the city no longer to live. We are required to illustrate and sketch the layout of their cities and show to our lectures. They will give us some comments and suggestions to let us make improvements on our city. Besides, we need to do more research on the cities, such as ancient cities, present cities and future cities which can give us some inspirations and new ideas to build our cities. There are some important steps to build a good city, such as planning efficient road and drainage systems, arranging the zoning area of the city, building a good infrastructure facilities which can provide a lot of convenience to the residents. This is a challenging and brainstorming project, we need to prepare well. Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 3

Water without minerals will also harm the body of the people. Sanitary system of the city must be good too. Clean environment will prevent the people of the city infect by some dangerous disease. Secondly, a good city needs a solid economy. The situation of the economy will affect the future and lifestyle of the people.

  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Mohenjo-Daro is an ancient city which was located in Pakistan. It was the world’s earliest major urban settlements. Mohenjo-Daro was abandoned in the 19th century BCE, and was not rediscovered until 1922. Besides, it was one of the largest cities of the ancient Indus Valley Civilization (Harappan Civilization). This city was lacks ostentatious palaces, temples or monuments. The city’s wealth and stature is evident in artifacts such as ivory, lapis, carnelian and gold beads, as well as the baked-brick structures themselves. Mohenjo-daro was the most advanced city of its time with outstanding sophisticated civil engineering and urban planning. Mohenjo- Daro was abandoned when Indus civilization went into sudden decline around 1900 BCE. Mohenjo-Daro has a planned layout based on a street grid of rectinlinear buildings. Most of the buildings and facilities were made by mud brick and wooden superstructure. The city is divided into two parts, the so called- Citadel and the Lower City. It has a large residential structure which was designed to house 5000 citizens and two large assembly halls. Furthermore, there was a central marketplace with a large central well. Mohenjo-Daro has a ‘Great Granary”. It did not have circuit of city walls but was otherwise well fortified, with guard towers. Information or element that you can use to your new future city After doing the research on Mohenjo-Daro, I learned that the grid system in the Mohenjo-Daro is very efficient and easy to get the directions. Besides, I knew that the water supply system in Mohenjo-Daro is good enough to supply water to every area of the city. I am considering to use these elements to my new future city. I think they are useful and give advantages to my city. Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 7

  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 5.Investigation & Data Collection: Future Cities Masdar City Masdar city is a planned city which is located at Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates. It is designed by British architectural firm Foster and Partners and engineering and environmental. At first glance, the parched landscape of Abu Dhabi looks like the craziest place to build any city, let alone a sustainable one. Masdar will be home to about 50,000 people, at least 1,000 businesses and a university. Besides, Masdar will employ a variety of renewable power resources. This project is Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 10
  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation supported by the global conversation charity World Wide Fund for Nature and the sustainability group Bioregional. The US government also supports this project and sign a partnership agreement with the Masdar to support plans on zero-carbon cities. It is also considered by many have the most ambitious targets of any eco-city plan. About the middle of 2010, a rash of news articles announced that Masdar was faltering a bit. The master plan of the Masdar is changing the world economy. The streets of the Masdar is pedestrian-only with pilotless vehicles running via magnets and fibre–optic cables. The technology of the Masdar city is very advancing comparing to other cities. 6. My ‘X’ city Venessy The Plan of the Venessy City In 2028,scientist in our country (Malaysia) had estimated the temperature in our world is going wrong and gradually increase. When the temperature of the world is increasing, the ice berg which locates at Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 11
  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Artic & Antarctic are almost completely melted. Melting of ice berg cause the increasing of sea level and the land will be submerged by sea water. So, the land is not livable anymore. So, scientists of Malaysia send this important message to the city construction industry for planning to build a new city that can livable in future. Then, architects are planning to build a city under the water. The underwater city is under 5 year construction to complete. The name of this underwater city is Venessy. The layout of Venessy City .The geometrical shape of the Venessy is based on the combination of the shape of hurricane and circle. The 4 main roads of the city is inspired by the pattern of the hurricane, like turning into the centre point. The centre point will be the city centre of Venessy. Why choose Venessy as the city’s name? Before naming my city, I had do some research about the name of the underwater city to make sure which kind of name is suitable for my city. I saw Lynosse ( one of the underwater city) which is from a poem called War Gods of the Deep. I think Lynosse is a unique name and sounds like ‘aqua’ things ( thing which is suitable for underwater city). Then I try to modify it Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 12
  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation by changing the Lynosse to Venessy. Both of them sounds similar and I think the name is elegance for a city. Lastly, I choose Venessy as my city’s name. The interesting part of Venessy Every cities must be have their own specialty which is interesting. The agriculture of Venessy is quite interesting because a lot of agriculture technologies are used up to produce high quality products and crops. Technologies which are used up are windmills, water sprinkler and solar panel. Solar panel which is located at upper part of the city provides solar energy to the crops to carry out photosynthesis. The water sprinklers which are used in the agriculture area provides water to the crops to make sure the crops do not wilt and stay healthy. The crops are very important to Venessy because, the quality of crops will affect the income of the city. The balance of economy will be affected.

  • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Conclusion Through this final project, I had learned a lot of things about the urban planning. It is not easy to build a city, we need to brainstorming and think about what is necessary for a city such as zoning, transport system, water supply system and etc. I learned that a good city needs a sustainability and livability. To let people to stay in your city, we need to provide a lot of conveniences and infrastructures to the people for providing them an easy life. Urban planning is challenging but fun. From now, I know more about how the system in the city progressing. City is very important to me. Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 15
