I as the mayor of “X” city should be the one who responsible to find out the problem that occurred to my “X” city. After finding out the problem that attacks my city, I should start finding ways to do problem solving. By solving the problem, I should be thinking how my citizen in my city should keep on their life. After thinking about city planning, I should do investigation and research of the cities that present or in the past or the future planning of other country. By using their useful information and elements to help and improve “X” city. Later I get inspired by looking at my house, I just need to build a house for my city, and it will solve most of the problems. Due to my city looks like a half- sphere so I call it as half-sphere city.

This water reservoir located at the north border between Egypt and Sudan, it lies on the world second largest river---River Nile’s. The main reason for Egyptians to build this dam is to get water supply and prevent flooding. History: Before the whole Aswan dam was built, the first Aswan dam--- Aswan Low Dam was constructed under the direction of Sir William Wilcocks. However, it only provide valuable irrigation during drought but still can’t solve the flooding problem happened annually. So, the Egyptian leader Gamal Abdel Nasser find help from United state and Britain for funding help but they quit funding and withdraw the funding on July 1956. Finally, the Soviet Union appeared and help them in funding problems. Construction was then started in 1960. Benefits:  Annual flooding problem solve by draining the water into the sea wastefully.  More water supply for agriculture yield.  Improve navigation across the Nile.  Provide enough energy power.  Helps to store water during drought.

  19. 19. 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 19 9.Conclusion In the end of the project, a city can’t be planned without any experiences or research because we can’t predict what will happen to our city. Sketching out the plan of the city to show details and all facilities can be provided so can do some discussion. Discussion also very important due to every person has different kind of thinking. Combining and filter the discussion objective may come out a better city. Besides that, pollution is very dangerous and serious problem in each city. So before building a city, the first problem should think about pollution so that everyone in the city are able to live peace and healthy.
