  • 3. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation 1.Introduction For Elements of Natural Built Environment, our final project title is ‘Better Livable Town’. This project consists of 40% which is 20% individual work and 20% group work. From compiling and understanding of all the research, students are required to plan for their own town. As the people in “X” town need a new town because it is too crowded, each student needs to pretend that they are the mayor of the “X” Town and propose a new “X” Town immediately so the citizens have place to live.

  • 4. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation By doing this project, students learn to explore the basic elements such as natural topography, landscape, space, building and infrastructure. They also learn to differentiate and compare the different development of the built environment by looking at the natural topography, landscape, space, building and infrastructure. 2.The Town NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 4
  • 5. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation The Town Definition A town is a place with many houses, shops, stores and many more where people live and work. It is larger than a village but smaller than a city. What is the brief history The development of towns is generally complex. In those of our historic towns not too mangled by Blitz or boom, you can trace the growth from medieval core through belts of Georgian, Victorian and modern buildings, almost like tree rings. Check your conclusions with a series of town maps. The date and magnificence of churches, public buildings and places of entertainment give other clues to the periods of greatest prosperity. In the earliest town centers, the key ingredients of civilization came together. Agricultural surpluses were sufficient to support specialized non farming producers and non farming political and religious leaders. The interaction of these groups resulted in a burst of creativity and innovation in a wide variety of fields. But these earliest centers were quite isolated. They were merely tiny islands of sedentary cultivators and small numbers of town people, surrounded by vast plains and woodlands. The earliest town centers appear to have traded rather extensively but to have maintained only intermittent and limited contacts with neighboring hunting- and-gathering peoples. Though small in size and not highly specialized in comparison with the cities of Sumer and other early civilizations, the first towns, settled during this period, nonetheless played critical roles in continuing the Neolithic transformation. The ruling elites and craft specialists of these towns contributed in several major ways to the introduction in the 4th millennium B.C. of critical inventions such as the wheel, the plow, writing, and the use of bronze that secured the future of civilized life as the central pattern of human history. What makes a town Someone needs to control the town. This person will run the whole town and has the responsibility to protect the citizens. The government is in charge of everything in the town. A town needs to have transportation, government buildings, business area, commercial area, recreational area, education area, religious and NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 5
  • 6. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation cultures area, hospitals, services area, industrial area, residential area, community area, port and shipping area, forest and green area and agriculture area and many more. Besides, town needs to provide sufficient food and water as they are the basic needs of living things. The management of waste and electrical supply also needs to be operated well so that the citizens can live in the town comfortably. What makes a good town • Safe to live • Clean environment • Clean water supplement • Efficient food supplement • Efficient electrical supplement • Balance economy • Sufficient education opportunities • Sufficient occupation opportunities • Sufficient shelters to live • Sufficient and convenient facilities • Consideration of health issues • Good medical resources • Consideration of environmental issues • Houses and services are energy efficient • Safety and security are accessible to all • Lots of green spaces • Lots of vacation spots • Lots of public spaces for people to interact NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 6
  • 7. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation What is the future town In this era of globalization, technology had taken more than 50 percent everyone’s lifestyle without doubt in the future, it will become a higher percentage. Most probably in the future, vehicles travel using biomass, electricity or solar energy, or the technology in town would be so advance that the vehicles wouldn’t even need to get in contact with the ground! The buildings would probably be built using the green building system which can protect the environment. It consists of many green landscapes and surrounds by plants. The future town focuses more on the environmental issues and will become clean and green, free of pollution and also peaceful lifestyle so that we can live better. 3.Investigation & Data Collection: Ancient town Xitang, China NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 7
  • 8. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation History Xitang is a famous town with thousands of years of history, lying in Jiashan County in Jiaxing City, Zhejiang Province. It dates back to the Spring and Autumn Period (770 BC-476 BC) and the Warring States Period (476 BC-221 BC). The town was a place of strategic importance on the boundary of the Wu and Yue states. Its flat terrain is marked by a quiet, natural environment with rivers running through it. From a bird's-eye view of the whole town, one sees blue water sparkling almost in every point the eyes touch and reflections of the houses in the water. The quiet water, handsome bridges, and the reflections in the early morning and the rosy sunset, fishing boats and the glistening lights in the evening, form an amazing picture full of a sense of poetry which can only be seen in the south lower reaches of the Yangtze River. People there, whether local residents or visitors, feel that this is fairyland. They even have no idea as to whether people are wandering in the picture or the picture is moving in their hearts. In the town, there are well-preserved groups of buildings of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) with relatively high artistic quality and research value. It is famous for its large number of covered corridors, lanes and bridges. NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 8
  • 9. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation What makes it a significant town and what are the details The covered corridor is the most well known scene in this town. It is also the most distinctive feature historic it offers compared with other water towns. Consisting of many sections, the whole covered corridor is more than 1,000 meters (about 1094 yards) long, attracting visitors from all over the world with its particular charm. Mostly, it is tile-roofed and built along the riverside, providing shelter for people to avoid either the baking hot sun or the rain. Besides, the bridges to the south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River are like the hyperlink to the internet. Beautiful legends about these bridges are still spread among the people. The craftsmanship of these well-preserved bridges is so masterly that they are indeed a feast for your eyes. In the old town, people who live there are not rich, so no newer modern houses have been built there. That's maybe one of the reasons why the old constructions are preserved as a whole almost without damage. Conclusion about the town NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 9
  • 10. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation The bridges which built between rivers can connect the buildings and citizens together. Some old towns in the world were destroyed by the natural disasters, but Xitang Town still looks new and peaceful. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle city life, there's really no better place for chilling out and experiencing the peaceful life of it. What information or element that I can use to my new future town ● I might be consider the boats as my town transportation as my town is on an island which contains rivers. ● I will consider the interaction between people is not neglected. ● I will plant more plants beside the rivers as they are the source of water for plants. Besides, plants can cool down the climate of my town. NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 10
  • 11. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation 4.Investigation & Data Collection: Present Town West Bromwich, England NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 11
  • 12. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation History In 1888, West Bromwich became a county borough, incorporating the village of Great Barr. It was expanded in 1966, acquiring most of the borough of Tiptonand Wednesbury urban district as well as a small section of Coseley urban district, before joining with the neighbouring county borough of Warley (which contained the towns of Rowley Regis, Oldbury and Smethwick) in 1974 to form the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell. West Bromwich suffered heavily in the Cholera epidemic of 1831 which spread northwards into the town. A temporary board of health was set up and a hospital opened in the former Revivalist chapel in Spon Lane. The West Bromwich Town Improvement Commissioners was established in 1854, and they tackled the drainage problem in the town. By the outbreak of World War I in 1914, many of the older houses that had been built to house workers during the Industrial Revolution were becoming unfit for human habitation. After the end of the war, the local council started building new homes to rehouse people from the rundown town centre.The local road network was massively improved during the 1960s and 1970s. Queen's Square shopping centre opened in the town centre in 1971, providing shoppers with a 60-unit indoor shopping centre and an 850-space multi- storey car park. West Bromwich's road links were further enhanced in 1995 on the completion of the Black Country Spine Road that gives an unbroken dual carriageway link to Bilston.The town has enjoyed something of an economic revival since 11 July 2013, when the New Square shopping and entertainment complex opened in the town centre on land adjoining the existing Queen's Square shopping centre. Hundreds of jobs have been created and the town has attracted retailers. NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 12
  • 13. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation What makes it a significant town and what are the details The town is famous for its football club, West Bromwich Albion. The club has won seven major trophies; five FA Cups, one Football League title and one Football League Cup. The local cricket team is West Bromwich Dartmouth Cricket Club and is based in the town, very near to West Bromwich Albion's ground, the Hawthorns. Engineering and chemicals are important to the town's economy, as it played a crucial part in the Industrial Revolution during the 19th century and still retains many manufacturing jobs to this day, despite a steady nationwide decline in this sector since the 1970s. Sandwell General Hospital which locates near the town centre is part of the Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the United Kingdom. Besides, the Church of England provides the most places of worship across the geographically wider West Bromwich Deanery. It has many mosques and also gurdwaras. It also provides sufficient education opportunities for the citizens as there are many primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR.

  • 18. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation 6.Case Study: A town on a small island An island is a naturally formed area of land, surrounded by water, which is above water at high tide. An island may be described as such despite the presence of an artificial land bridge, for example Singapore and its causeway, or the various Dutch delta islands, such as IJsselmonde. Some places may even retain "island" in their names for historical reasons after being connected to a larger landmass by a wide land bridge, such as Coney Island or Coronado Island. Conversely, when a piece of land is separated from the mainland by a man-made canal, for example the Peloponnese by the Corinth Canal, it is generally not considered an island. Furthermore, there are two main types of islands which are continental islands and oceanic islands. There are also artificial islands. Advantages and Disadvantages of island Advantages ● It has the natural barriers of water for protection and the water can provide a source of food and transportation. ● There are surfing and the beautiful beaches. ● We can grow some exotic fruits and vegetables as the soil is fertile. NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR. LEE CHERNG YIH | FNBE APRIL 2014 | Taylor’s University 18
  • 19. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation ● Warm tropical climate, golden sandy beaches and ravishing sapphire seas which surround the island. ● It is remote and apart from the outside world, which gives us a quieter environment to live in and allows us to explore the island relatively freely and safely. Disadvantages ● It sometime has natural disaster such as tsunami which can kill lots of people. ● High rate of death due to drowning in the huge sea. ● People need to take aeroplanes or ferries if they want to visit other places. ● Water shortage as the heavy rain is irregular from season to season and from year to year and also most islands have little water storage capacity. ● Solid waste disposal which are improper managed can cause health and pollution problems. Why the town is on an island ●I can use sea water to generate energy as water is renewable energy. ●Boats can be good public transport to travel around the town by using the rivers instead of road vehicles. ●I can build underwater aquarium without catching the aquatic animals and can attract tourist to visit my town. ●Island is remote and apart from the outside world, which gives us a quitter environment to live in and allows us to live on it freely.

  • 38. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Better Livable Town Representation 8.Conclusion It has been few weeks since I have been researching on town, it is an extremely challenging project as I’m just a beginner in architecture. But, I really enjoy the process of doing this project and I’ve learned many things. By doing research towards ancient, present and future towns, it makes a very big difference when planning a town as I can see how the world is changing and investigate the development of buildings. Besides, I realize that green place plays an important role in our life as it allows us to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle city life. I also learn to differentiate and compare the different development of the built environment by looking at the natural topography, landscape, space, building and infrastructure. In a nutshell, I believe that Rafflesia Town is the town that you will never leave once you live. It is the best island town ever! Thank you! NG HONG BIN | 0319735 | MR.
