ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 3 1.Introduction: The title for ENBE final project is, Project Two, Built Environment – “The Future City Representation”. For Part A (individual component) in this final project,students need to pretend as a mayor of “X” city which needs to propose a new layout of the city due to some reasons that the “X” city is no longer livable. Type for the new city can be either underground, underwater, floating on water, in the air, or enhance the existing city. Students also allowed combining two type of the city for our new city. Data and information from ancient cities, present cities and future cities have been collected and some researched about component and element of city have done for purpose just to understand and produce a sustainable and livable city .The new “X” city are established in certain conditions and rules such as citizen are Malaysian, population between 150,000 – 500,000 and new city is smaller than Subang Jaya (70km2). Symbiotic relationship, basic unit, form and function of the elements of the natural and built environment have been investigated, studied and analyzedto overcome the problems faced by the “X” city which is also related to the subject (Elements of Natural and Built Environments, ENBE).
  4. 4. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 4 2.The City : 2.1 The city definition: City is, the permanently size of population which is greater than the town or village with legal or conventional distinction that can vary between regions and nations. A city have a stationary population which doesn‟t migrate . In addition, concept of city also refers to certain type of community, urban community, the culture known as urbanism. 2.2What makes a city: Basically cities are made by high populations or the highest forms of social organization which does not migrate. In the city, consists of road system for transportations, building laws, business center, sport center, food center for food supply, educational systems, sanitations, land usage, housing and so on. 2.3 What makes a good city: First of all, the city must in mixed neighborhoods to make sure the city is in density. Then , the city must also have a walk able streets with large footpaths along the road to provide spaces for a density community. In a good city, a secure water supply and sanitation system is provided in good conditions. In addition, safeness of the area of residential is important to make a good city. So, safeguard such as police must be included in the city area. Besides that, differences stages of educational systems and business centre are provided in the city. High qualities of medical requirement are provided the city such as hospital, pharmacy and also clinics. Difference types of public transportations are provided also such as buses and Monorail. Public spaces around the residential area provided. 2.4 What is the future city: Future city is upcoming places for human to live in which maybe exist after 20 years,30 years or 50 years. Existing of the future city can be any reasons, such as, the advance of the present city to create another city, nature disaster happened in the present city which no longer liveable, or maybe the present city attacked by the enemy in World War 3.Architects and designer now a day, have to imagine and design out the difference outlook of buildings which are sustainable and liveable. Future city can be located in any places such as in underwater, underground, top in the air, floating on water or also maybe out of the space. All the infrastructures, facilities and etcetera will be more advance and develop compare to the
  5. 5. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 5 present city. The social living in the future city such as culture and habits might be different or same compare to present city according to the conditions and situation around the future city located.Example of future city is Syph , Australia. The concept of city is designed as underwater city.

It is thought that Rome’s population was over 1 million people when the city was at the height of its power. From Rome, the heart of government beat; military decisions were taken and the vast wealth Rome earned was invested in a series of magnificent buildings. To start with, many buildings in Rome were built around the forum. Traditionally, this had been a market place and an area where people met. Therefore, it would have been a natural place to put government buildings, temples and palaces. As Rome grew, however, the forum became more and more crowded. Therefore, a second city centre was planned and built some distance from the forum but still in Rome itself. Rome itself had some magnificent buildings erected within the city. Some exist to this day, all be it in a less wonderful state. The most famous is probably the Colosseum where thousands of Roman citizens would gather for their entertainment – be it animals fighting or gladiators etc. Such grand buildings were constructed so that emperors would be remembered by future generations. The Colosseum was built on the orders of the Emperor Vespasian and completed when the Emperor Titus was in power. The building was finally completed in AD 80. Rome also had numerous triumphal arches constructed throughout the city to celebrate military victories. These served a dual purpose. First, they were a celebration of the military victories the Romans had and, second, they were a reminder to the people of Rome of how powerful the army was. As with any city, Rome had its rich and poor areas. The poor could only afford to live in wooden houses which were a serious fire risk in a hot country like Italy. On a number of occasions, Rome suffered severe damage as a result of fires starting in the city’s slums. The slums were also dangerous places to go to if you had any money as crime was very common. The Emperor Augustus created a police force to patrol the city but the poor areas remained all but untamed. However, for the influential people of Rome, this was of little importance as they never visited such areas. Conclusion for Rome: Through this investigation, I have learned about some important aspects of ancient Roman life. As you can see, ancient Rome was the birthplace of many significant technological, political, social, and cultural advancements.

London is also the largest city in the European Union. The estimated population of Greater London on 1 January 2005 was 7,421,328 with a metropolitan area population of over 12.5 million. London's population includes a very diverse range of peoples, cultures and religions, making it one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe and, indeed, the world. Over 300 languages are spoken in London, making the capital the most linguistically diverse city in the world. London is the home of many global institutions, organisations and companies, and as such retains a leading role in global affairs. London has a great number of important buildings, including world-famous museums, theatres, concert halls, airports, railway stations, palaces, and offices. London is also home to foreign embassies, consulates and High Commissions. Arts and Culture With its huge Turbine Hall, the Tate modern is the place to experience modern and contemporary art. We can see work by Picasso, Dali, and Pollock all for free and the best of the British at the National Portrait Gallery.

Today, London Underground is a major business with three million passenger journeys made every day, serving 275 stations and over 408 km of railway.
  9. 9. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 9 Past and future London has changed a lot since the first stretch of line - the Metropolitan, or Met - opened on 9 January 1863. The first stretch measured six kilometres (nearly four miles) and ran between Paddington (Bishop's Road) and Farringdon Street. Cut and cover To build the Met, streets along the route were dug up, tracks laid in a trench, covered with a brick-lined tunnel and the road surface replaced. Known as the 'cut and cover' method, this was quick and effective, but created as many problems as it was designed to solve. It caused congestion during construction and it was abandoned towards the end of the 19th century. By then, however, the Metropolitan was a success, stretching ever further across Middlesex, through Hertfordshire and into Buckinghamshire. Other companies were keen to get involved and by Christmas 1868, the Metropolitan District had opened a line between Westminster and South Kensington. This linked to a branch line from the original Met and some eastward extensions. These railways completed today's Circle line by 1884. Once the system had started there was no stopping it and the search was on for further opportunities. The Thames Tunnel Twenty years before the Met steamed into history, Sir Marc Brunel - and his famous son Isambard - had built the Thames Tunnel between Rotherhithe and Wapping. This was the first underwater tunnel in the world. The method used was similar to coal mining. Engineers sank vertical shafts and excavated the tunnels from within a metal shield. It is a tribute to the Brunels that major refurbishment to the tunnel was only needed during the 1990s. Originally designed for horse-drawn traffic, it opened in 1843 for pedestrians, became a railway tunnel in 1869 and now carries the East London line. Conclusion London - the most populous city within the European Union with an official population of 7.5 million (metropolitan area – 13mil.) is so diverse and the range of peoples, cultures and religions is so wide that it’s by no means possible to get to know it in a week or two. It’s spoken, that one needs a year to become aware of local attitudes and people. Everyone who travels to London is in advance reassured that he or she will have a ―great time‖ there. That’s unequivocal.

ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 10 5.Investigation & Data Collection in future cities: THE SEACRAPER The Seascraper—a self-sufficient community of homes, offices, and recreational space—was designed with the intention of slowing urban sprawl, according to its designers. 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. Why floating City? Floating construction by comparison with conventional urban development offers a number of advantages that support the growing market for this form of building. - makes multiple use of space possible: combines urban development and water storage; - resolves flooding problems; - allows for flexible town planning;
  11. 11. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 11 - has international allure; - requires no input of sand to prepare land for building, thus saving time and money; - incurs no cost items from repairs arising from soil settlement. 6. The “X” City: 6 Brief of „X‟ city: During the year of 2030, the rapid development of industries in the „X‟ city named Subang Jaya which is located in the state of Selangor in Malaysia and the advance of technology makes the people‟s life comfortable. Developments and advance of the area sure will involve with deforestation. In this situation, most of the natural forest on the earth will be greatly reduce, to build up industrial area. Decreasing amount of plants effected the pollution of air level that will increase. This is because plant will absorb carbon dioxide in the surrounding and produce oxygen that will make the surrounding air fresh. In addition to that, at that period, people live in luxuries life which most family member in a house will have personal car. This causes excessive of cars in the city lead to the increase of carbon monoxide being release to the atmosphere. In naturally, earth will reflects the heat from the sun that we called it as infrared ray and send it back to space. Unfortunately, the increases of carbon gases in the atmosphere will block the reflection of ray. Thinker the layer of gases, more heat will be absorb, then causes the temperature in the earth increases. As people focused in developing and doesn‟t concern about this issue, serious global warming occurred. In 2033, temperature in Subang Jaya was extremely high, causes the city no longer liveable. Populations in Subang Jaya: Population of Subang Jaya estimate around 710,000 which consists of different races, religions and also culture. The three main races in Malaysia are Malay, Chinese and Indian. Culture and jobs: Different races in Malaysia automatically will have different type of culture. New year celebration for different races will be celebrated in different time. For instance, Malay
  12. 12. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 12 people will celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri in August or September according to muslim‟s calendar. As for Chinese, they celebrate Chinese New Year in January or February according to Chinese‟s calendar while Indian celebrate Deepavali in September or October according to their calendar.Besides that, as a career, people in Subang Jaya mostly involved in education field, social services, health services, government services and etcetera. Good future city: As the condition of Global Warming getting worse, people in Subang Jaya need a new place as a shelter to continue survive. A place with good air quality and suitable temperature condition will be a good future city. In addition, solid infrastructure and high quality of healthcare facilities is also needed for a better city. City with low criminal and low health risks is also consider as good city. Conclusion for Subang Jaya city: As the problem of global warming that causes the rise of temperature in Subang Jaya , the city was no longer liveable. To rescue the people in Subang Jaya, a new better city is needed. 7. The New “X” City – Floating On Water Wonderland City : Wonderland City: Wonderland can be consider as a luxury city because all the facilities provided will be high qualities and cut down the living cost. WONDERLAND is a well plan city. The transportation for the people living in that city is a bit different. People have to Kaya-King or take city ferry to the destination. Not only that, restrict city only can drive electric car (Only have 50cars for who really can pay for it) or bicycle so that there will be no traffic jam with the water access. People living in this city is very comfortable and relax because the zoning area had planned very well. People in the city will no longer need GPS to get navigation because the city is using a calgary map concept. With this concept, people will not easy get lost and easier to find that place they wanted to go. Why the city floating on water?

ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 13 As the problem of global warming that causedthe city hopeless, the city was no longer liveable. The polar ice sheets are melting, dry land cracked and others. So, people have to live on the water for their own good. Water can produce hydroelectric energy and many more. 1.The Process & Progress (organized documents of weekly research and tutorial sketches or findings scan it in or insert the original documents)

For instance, collection all the sample seed of plants in lab to ensure the species will not extinct if the world change, and this also to ensure the sustain of food for the future. Besides that, shelter is important for human being, specialist profession should think about future place or shelter. What I have learned from this project is to be more close to people needs and create something that can make it simple. A great future city is a city that is sustainable and liveable. Last but not least, during my research I gained a lot of extra information about built environment. (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
