  3. 3. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 1.Introduction In this project , I will be a mayor of "X" city and will have to investigate and propose a future city . City has faced some problem that people are not longer safe to live so we need to do it fast. We were given 6 options that is build a city floating on water , underwater , underground , on air , enhance existing city or combine 2 types together. Before creating the city I need to research how to make a livable and sustainable city and also research on ancient, present and future city . I have to propose a small size city between 25-40 kilometer square and include this in my planning city: - structure of the city - focus of the city - zoning of the city - The people and their activities - Transportation and infrastructures - Utility and amenities - energy - services (150words) Yap Yong Xing| 0314715 | Group w | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 3
  4. 4. ENBE | Final Project | Part A – Report | The Future City Representation 2.The City 2.1The City Definition • A center of population, commerce, and culture; a town of significant size and importance. • A place with tall buildings , traffic jams , large population and bright lights. 2.2.What is the brief history • Towns and cities have a long history, although opinions vary on whether any particular ancient settlement can be considered to be a city. A city formed as central places of trade for the benefit of the members living in close proximity to others facilitates interaction of all kinds. These interactions generate both positive and negative externalities between others' actions. Benefits include reduced transport costs, exchange of ideas, sharing of natural resources, large local markets, and later in their development, amenities such as running water and sewage disposal. Possible costs would include higher rate of crime, higher mortality rates, higher cost of living, worse pollution, traffic and high commuting times. Cities will grow when the benefits of proximity between people and firms are higher than the cost. 2.3.What makes a good city • safe and reliable • A secure water supply and sanitation system • Economy stability • A convenient public transportations • Great schools. • Strong community work • Affordable housing and car Yap Yong Xing| 0314715 | Group w | FNBE April 2013 | Taylor’s University 4
