    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 6.The “X” City X City was founded in 1969 and was one of the last surviving cities in the world after the sudden rise in sea level. The rise that was caused by lava tunnels under the ice in Antarctica exploding and melting all the icebergs and most of the ice on lands. Shortly after that the same thing happened in the Arctic, causing cities in continents all over the world to sink below the surface of the water. The people of X city are of Malaysian origin, they belong to three main races of Malaysia Indian, Chinese, and Malay. The new city would need to be well protected but most importantly it would need to be able to sustain itself well 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 and still last for centuries to come, to make sure the people of the city live long and healthy. 7.The Bubble City Due to the fact that the city was about to sink below the surface of the water, I decided that a city that floats on water was the best solution to the problem. I Came up with the name when i researched about how to make the city float using compressed foam and air so that when the seas are rough the city will close up its giant glass pieces and be completely covered from the outside and look like a bubble.The Bubble city will be a city that will be safe and continue to exists for many years to come.

    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 8.The Process & Progress Because the circular shape of floating cities were common and showed me a balanced and therefore stable structure on the sea I chose it. I decided that the main pavilion will have the town square. The next two pavilions will be the retail pavilion where the entire pavilion will be used like a giant mall and the commercial pavilion where all the office and Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 14
    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation companies will be in. The next few pavilions will be the residential pavilions where all houses or condo like apartments will be placed. The last two pavilions will be the education pavilions, one will be the university pavilion and the will be the primary and secondary school pavilion. For my next ideas I came up with an organic shaped city that looked something similar to a postage stamp. I chose that particular shape because of balance reasons so that the city floats effortlessly.The shape of this city was not pleasing to the eyes or easy to plan. Next I came up with a circular ball shaped city floating in the sea. I chose this shape to ensure the city always floats but due to its shape the city may turn upside down Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 15
    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation when hit by rough waters causing accidents, chaos and many fatalities. Then I came up with the idea of a rounded square shape that will be floating by compressed foam and air at the bottom, besides that each corner of the square will have giant protrudents of metal that can detect when or if needed the city will close its giant glass covers that will protect the city from drowning and release giant anchors preventing anyside of the city from rising to high and flipping over. This city will have greenery and animals at the core of it, that will provide oxygen when the glass dome is closed and continuous supply of food for the people of the city.

    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 9.Conclusion The city was built with the greenery of trees and vegetables and a farm at its center to ensure the supply of oxygen and food is sufficient. The future city should be a completely green city for the sake of the new city surviving a long time and to avoid the further deterioration of the natural environment. 10.Reference Links Your Name | Your Student ID | Group d/w/n | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 17
