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 This assignment is for us to expose the natural and built environment and build a future city based on our ideas. Each group is formed by 4 to 5 members. We have been asked to choose a title for our city. This report is in the Part A of Individual part. This report will concentrate on collected information, progress and development. We need to collect data from the ancient city, present city and future city to help us more understand about the city .After that, we need to do more sketches and illustrations to show how our future city looks like. Introduction

An area that is more densely populated or developed than the surrounding area and having some local powers of government An inhabited place of greater size, population, or importance than a town or village. The CITY
  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 What makes a city ? The complexity of road systems, transportation, building, markets, industrial, commercial and residential areas create places for people to work and the government organisation to run the city . Following industrialisation, large numbers of people moved to cities in search of jobs and since then there has been an unprecedented growth in the number and size of cities worldwide. This process is called "urbanization".

"A good city is like a good party - people stay longer than really necessary, because they are enjoying themselves,” --Jan Gehl, Danish Architect Land use Land is being used by different kinds of activities .It lays out a plan for the future, showing how land will be used for different activities. The land use component of a plan should be shown the future development and helps a community establishes zoning codes. Public transportation Fantastic transportation helps ensure that every part of the city is adequately served by the transportation system and that all the people in the community can get where they need to go. Renewable Energy An intelligent combination of wind, water, solar and geothermal energy productions develop the city. Renewable energy projects can also bring economic benefits to many regional areas, as most projects are located away from centers.
  7. 7. 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 7 What are the ideas for future city? Consider public transit options beyond road and rail It’s time to get people out of the cars, yet traditional road-based technologies present serious difficulties. The transit can be built more sustainably from both an economic and ecological view. Reforesting City By integrating more trees and photosynthesizing plants within the fabric of the city, harness the power of plants to absorb carbon from the atmosphere. For example,greenscreen is a type of metal structure that can be attached to existing walls or used to create freestanding growing walls.

Machu Picchu built at the height of the Inca Empire, which dominated western South America in the 15th and 16th centuries. The Inca sites, which was set in a spectacular position on a high precipice surrounded by almost sheer mountain peaks. In fact, the Spaniards never knew it was there because it was abandoned an estimated 100 years after its construction, probably around the time the Spanish began their conquest of the mighty pre-Columbian civilization in the 1530s. Machu Picchu was made up of more than 150 buildings ranging from baths and houses to temples and sanctuaries. Investigation & Data Collection: Ancient City _MACHU PICCHU
  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 What are the details of Machu Picchu? The walls, terraces, stairways, central plaza and sun temple, all build of polygonal dressed stone blocks and are cut to fit together without mortar. Terraced fields on the edge of the site are agriculture used and provide protection from uncontrolled runoff and hillside erosion.

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 How does the drainage system works in Machu Picchu? Without good drainage and foundation construction, the buildings will fall down and the agricultural terraces will collapse due to the high rainfall, steep slopes, slide prone soils, and settlement. The surface and subsurface drainage at Machu Picchu is given high priority during its design and construction. The remarkable subsurface drainage works found under the plaza is provided a storm water infiltration and disposal area. The thick layer of rocks and waste stone chips provide adequate permeability for flow, as well as a subsurface storage reservoir to avoid a high water table condition during high-intensity rainstorms.
  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 How do the agricultural terraces work in Machu Picchu? A large cross-section interceptor surface drain is constructed from south to north at the base of a long slope and immediately above the domestic water supply canal . The steep sloping interceptor drain, about 42 m long, terminated at the Main Drain after passing through the south wall of the Main Drain. Field evidence consisting of an adjacent granite stairway free of damage but with post-construction terrace wall deflections, shows that the slide occurred during the period of construction and that the slope had been satisfactorily stabilized prior to the Inca abandonment of Machu Picchu.

A state of the northeast United States. It was admitted as one of the original Thirteen Colonies in 1788. In early days New York was a city that looked forward. Its street grid was designed for 1m people at a time when the population barely topped 100,000. The Central Park was planned 150 years ago in a swamp nowhere near the heart of Manhattan, which was still downtown. Other than that, the subway was built 100 years ago when much of New York was still farmland. Investigation & Data Collection : Present City__ New York

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 How the street grid works in New York ? Previously, streets in the city were irregular and followed patterns parallel to the waterfronts on both sides of Manhattan. But in 1811, the city imposed a “grid”. All future real estate development was controlled by 2,028 rectangular blocks separated by avenues running north-south and streets east-west. Property was sold in small, uniform, 100-foot by 25-foot lots, theoretically providing affordable housing for the city’s mechanic and artisanal classes. The grid abolished all existing rights-of-way.

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 14 How to give obsolete traces a new life? The High Line is a public park built on an historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s West Side and opened in 2009. The species of perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees were chosen for their hardiness, sustainability, and textural and colour variation, with a focus on native species. Many of the species that originally grew on the High Line's rail bed are incorporated into the park's landscape.

The industrial areas in Copenhagen,Danmark are next in the line for urban development. A new light rail is planned to interconnect 20 development zones. The architects are proposing to turn the light rail line into a spine of dense urbanity with a series of peaks at the stations. By combing the rail with strategies for energy exchange,waste management,water treatment and electric car stations,the infrastructure could become the base for a new sustainable ring of development around Cophenagen.

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 16 What is the Finger Plan in Loop City? The architects propose to upgrade the planned light rail by extending it to form a regional ring and create a new 50 year development perspective for a cross border region between Sweden and Denmark. Finger Plan is about the connectivity from suburb to centre the Loop City is linking a string of highly differentiated urban notes, universities and working space in a centre-less metropolitan region. The result of the vision is a series of ideas for future cities tied together by a string of public transport upgraded with strategies for waste handling, water treatment and energy.

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 17 What is the Future Urban Planning ( Compact Urban Cell)? Kent Larson addressed the issues of unchecked expansion and sprawl since industrialization. He starts the development of the small community, the public within walking distance of 20 minutes to meet the various needs and then concatenate the various communities to public transportation. The magic of cities is that they have the potential to provide most things people need for inspired living within 20 minutes of residential area.. Through technological innovation, sharing vehicles and scaling down housing with convertible, multiple-use strategies, cities can serve the needs of the increasing number of people living in them without decreasing the standard of living of others.

X city built in 19th century. X city is multi-cultural society. The main ethnic groups are the Malays as well as large populations of Chinese, and Indians. The peoples have their individual traditions and lifestyles. Everything had changed since 21st century. Deforestation was clearing the forest and decreasing the amount of oxygen in atmosphere. Forests were cut down for many reasons, but most of them were related to money .This was because the main income of the city was came from logging operations, which provide the world’s wood and paper products. The ‘X’ City

"Oxygen dropped from its highest level to its lowest level ever in only 20 million years," -Huey A depiction of present-day Earth overlaid with simulated atmospheric oxygen of the early Triassic period. Because oxygen was low even at sea level, animals would have been restricted to very low altitudes. Green or light-shaded areas can be referred to low altitudes with more oxygen. Red areas are higher elevations where many animals could not have found sufficient oxygen and so could not have lived or even traversed, leaving lowland populations fragmented and isolated. Oxygen makes up about 21 percent of our atmosphere, but in the early Permian period it was 30 percent. From this invigorating level, it fell to about 16 percent at the time of the Great Dying and over the next 10 million years continued to drop to 12 percent.

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 20 7 New ‘X’ City NEOS Why is NEOS floats on water ? Most of the oxygen (Around 50% to 70 %) that we breath is comes from the ocean. That’s more than all of the world’s rainforests combined. My people can get the fresh air from the oxygen that releases by the algae which live in the ocean. The ocean is the first source of protein for more than a billion people. My people’s food is depended on agriculture and fishing. The ocean regulates our climate, absorbs carbon dioxide, holds 97% of Earth’s water, and supports the greatest abundance of life on our planet. The water supplied problem is solved as easy as well. More than 60% of the world’s population lives on or near the coast. The ocean provides a livelihood, recreation, beauty, wonder, and untapped scientific discovery, leading to new medications, foods, and advanced technologies.

Tourism area combines with government building. The main income of the city is changed to tourism because of the multi- cultural society shows unique of NEOS. Placed in the centre is to provide convenience to tourists. Residential area Surround the infrastructure and public facilities to provide most things people need for inspired living within 20 minutes journey. Rubbish Collecting System with Electricity supply station NEOS supplies electricity by Biomass (Waste- to – Energy ), facilities offer a safe, technologically advanced means of waste disposal while also generating clean, renewable energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and supporting recycling through the recovery of metals.

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 28 9 “In great cities, spaces as well as places are designed and built: walking, witnessing, being in public, are as much part of the design and purpose as is being inside to eat, sleep, make shoes or love or music. The word citizen has to do with cities, and the ideal city is organized around citizenship -- around participation in public life.” Rebecca Solnit Through this assignment, I have learned that the people is the main point in urban planning. Peoples’ activities effect the function of the places . Every design and plan should consider the peoples who live there. Conclusion
