    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 1. Introduction * (describe the project brief, the things that you have to do etc + how does it relate to the subject. Max 3 paragraph.. not more that 150 words.) Based on this project, the things that I have to do is to propose a new layout of my new city quickly. I also had to show the symbiotic relationship of the elements of the natural and built environment. In addition, I should be able to describe the different characteristic of the environment after completing this project. Researches on past, present and future cities also need to be done to understand the component and elements that a city needs. I also had to come up with a new future city which is better than the present one. The city that I have to come up with must be sustainable and livable for all my citizens.

It is built on an island, called Lake Texcoco,in the Valley of Mexico. 3.2- The city I'm concentrating on is Tenochtitlan, also known as Mexico now. I took Tenochtitlan as an example of my ancient cities on floating cities. 3.3- Around 45% of the population uses the public transit. The city plan is laid out on a Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 7
    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation grid plan. The city was divided into four zones or campan, each campan is divided to 20 districts and each calpulli is crossed by streets or tlaxilcalli. There are three main streets that crossed the city, each leading to one of the three causeways to the mainland, Each districts is separated into – marketplace, public buildings and palaces of Montezuma. The population of the city is about 200,000 people. 3.4- In 1521, the city was destroyed. The rest of the city was either destroyed, dismantled or buried as Mexico City was built on top of it. 3.5- There were canals along the city and it reached to all parts of the city. I took the canal as an example to put it in my future city. Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 8

It is located in northeastern Italy sited on a group of 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. 4.2- I took Venice, Italy as an example for my present floating city. 4.3- The city is divided into six areas. These districts consist of parishes. The transportation used are cars, boats, walking, waterbuses, water taxis, train and gondola. Venice is built on an archipelago of 117 islands formed by 177 canals in a shallow lagoon, connected by 409 bridges. What makes it a significant city is that it is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world for its celebrated art and architecture. Tourist are attracted to visit this country is because of its culture which is performing arts and music, its grandeur architecture, interior design, cuisine, literature, art and festivals.

Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 13
    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 5.3- It is a prototype for a self-sufficient amphibious city. It designed to hold approximately around 50,000 people. A mixed terrain man-made landscape, provided by an artificial lagoon and three ridges, create a diverse environment for the inhabitants. Each Lilypad is intended to be either near a coast, or floating around in the ocean. 5.4- The goal for this design is to create a harmonious coexistence of human and nature. 5.5- To make a greener future city based on Lilypad Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 14 Aerohotel Floating Houses Lilypad

    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 6.1- What happened to my city- In the year 2033, the world population has increased a lot and land cannot withstand the weight of it. Some more global warming has become serious where all the ice has melted which increases the water level of planet Earth. Therefore, I decided to build a city floating on water. 6.2- Malaysians are living on my floating city. The populations in my city are around 300,000 people. In my city, there will be Malays, Chinese, Indians, and Bumiputras. The main spoken language will be English in my city. 6.3- The type of job that my citizens will mostly consider is port policemen to guard around the border so that no pirates will come. Besides that, there will be fishermen too to provide food supply for my city. There will be various types of jobs for my citizens. 6.4- What would be a good future city for them is that it is modern, clean, suitable temperature, green environmental, good transportation, safe neighborhoods and more. 7.

I also watched a few movies to get my ideas to come up with this city. 7.4- Part A(iii) A- Geometric shape, form, pattern and structure of the city. - The geometric shape of my city will be in a honeycomb structure. There will be lots of hexagon combined together to form a big honeycomb or hexagon like pattern. The reason I chose this pattern is because of its hexagonal cells. It is also widely used in construction. It is strong and also lightweight. All the hexagonal cells will be linked together. One of cell will be approximately 20m wide and 50m tall Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 17

    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation Part A (iii) E- Transportation and Infrastructure - Using public transports or cars can cause pollutions in my city and I don’t want that to happen. So, in my future city, hybrid cars that do not release carbon monoxide will be used, same goes to the public transport. All cars and public transport will be electrical charged or using the sunlight as an energy source. -Electric will be obtained from hydroelectric near the end of the city.. It will save cost as it is only using the energy from water.. -Cars will not be use is large group because it may cause traffic jams. Instead, straddling buses will be used in my city. All my citizens will practice using the future transportation, straddling. Gondola will be used too to bring tourist around the recreational part of my city. -I want the road in my city to be solar panelize. That means it will be using solar Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 21 Observatory bridge

Streets lights will also be installed using solar panel to receive energy and to light up when it starts to be dark at night. The road will also have LED installed in them so it will light up. The top part of my road will be transparent-like so that energy from the sun will be collected. Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 22 Solar paneled roads

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 During the process of collecting data for my city, what was important was to know whether if it is sustainable or livable for my citizens. There were a lot to be concern about, from ‘What if it sinks one day?’ What if no one wants to live in my city and it becomes deserted?. Going through lots of process during the planning of my city is also important to make Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 43
    • ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation sure that everything is perfect. What I’ve learned throughout this project is that coming up with a new city is not easy even though it sounds easy. There are a lot to think about, from the zoning to how they sustain their energy. Besides that, going through trial and error in the process also makes me someone who doesn’t give up continuing sketching. Cassandra Wong | 0313365 | Group N| FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 44
