Introduction to make sense of a city when walking along any of its streets, thinking about the complexity of what we see before our eyes and wondering about that which lies behind the facades of the buildings and beyond the bend of the street. To read and interpret the tangle of overlapping and intertwined stories that this collection of people, objects and events offers. the change in urban scene, constant transformation of this landscape, or rather cityscape, around us, a mutation that we have come to associate with livelihood without movement and change. To understand urban design we will need to understand the urban space and the processes that produce it. there is a degree of ambiguity and uncertainty about the nature and scope of urban
Forrester’s Urban Dynamics The growth processes of urban areas are the main issue of the book. Urban areas are considered as a system of interacting industries, housing, and people. The book examines the life cycle of an urban area using the system dynamics methodology. 2.1. System Dynamics Methodology System dynamics is a simulation based methodology which can be used in analyzing dynamics systems.
The Situationists envisioned an endless city that focused on creating situations through which people could experience the city in a different manner. While these various theoretical interpretations enriched an understanding of architecture and urbanism in profound fashions, they were not exactly disparate. Rather, it is obvious that common threads of architectural and urbanist theory bridge the gap between these seemingly divergent expositions. Likewise, it is evident that these developments are critical responses to contemporaneous architects and urbanists. In understanding this connection, one is able to view these works as retaliations against norms rather than initiations from a void.
“THE GENERATORS OF CITY DIVERSITY” BY JANE JACOBS Phạm Nguyên Thảo Student ID: 14510673775 Urban planning plays an important role in city life, especially in a dynamic economy and environment of the city nowadays. Because of the rise in number of crime, pollution, traffic jam,…, many cities are looking for new solutions to deal with these ever growing problems. In the past, many urban planners tried to create perfect cities to completely replace the old cities, for example Ebenezer Howard’s Garden City, or Le Corbusier’s Radiant City. Nevertheless, recent planning has switched from strict building codes and grand schemes, to a more community-based approach that focuses on improving community life and the environment in which people live in. Besides, developing cities also face the threat of losing their diversity and identities.
Urban design involves the integration of knowledge from varied fields such as the built environment, urban planning, landscape architecture, civil and municipal engineering. Urban planning requires a good understanding of the physical geography that should be developed. In most cases, urban design involves the coming up with connections that connect people and places, movement and urban form and the built fabric. Urban design determines a number of factors in an area. The major one is environmental stewardship, social
Accordingly, it leads to crucial effects on social, economic and physical developments in urban areas. (Fadzil, 2014). The study on seasonal migration is relatively important for urban planning purposes. This is because of seasonal migration is relevant to the development policy of urban planning (Obudho, 1994). Generally, its relevance is referred to two aspects or issues in urban and fringe area perspectives: (a) contribution of internal migration on urban growth as well as the pace level of urbanization (Pacione, 2001), and (b) negative implications of internal migration on urban areas such as urban sprawl, squatters and slum areas, poverty, and pollution (Skeldon, 2002, Yaakup et al., 2000).
CHAPTER TWO: LITERARTURE REVIEW 2.1 Introduction Urban Development is the science of managing and directing city growth with respects to the discipline of land utilization planning which explores a very wide range of aspects of the built and social environments. Urban development process is a highly complicated process containing various phases. As a main core of the process, urban design gives numbers of proposed plans that are called alternatives. It is worthy to mention that the decision making concerning differentiating between these alternatives is the most crucial phase of urban development process; as accordingly the adaptation and implantation of urban plans can take place. Urban projects have many problems that are surely affect the assessment processes of alternatives and therefore the choice of their best.
Abstract: Planning, design and implementation of traffic infrastructure is a complex task especially when it is done for infrastructure located in urban areas because it depends on different factors and interests. This is why the solutions have to be evaluated by different type of criteria (traffic, economic, environmental and social). For this purpose during last decades multi-criteria methods came into use and numerous methods have been developed which are classified as multi-criteria analysis methods (e.g. PROMETHEE, TOPSIS, and AHP). In this paper the overview of how the multi-criteria analysis method AHP - Analytic Hierarchy Process is used as decision making tool in the process of transportation planning.
The process has had a major impact on many urban landscapes, and has played an important role in the history and demographics of cities around the world. The purpose of urban renewal is to improve specific areas of a city that are poorly developed or underdeveloped. These areas
Two different area standing side by side separated by status and rights. The development and management of sustainable urban agglomerations are major challenges on a global scale. The most significant part of my academic journey as my concern in city inequality was working with informal settlement to develop an alternative design and to upgrade the settlement of the Winongo and Gajahwong riverside settlement in Yogyakarta together with Arkom Jogja. The term of informal settlement always remain a negative impression to most of the city image. Informal area, which somehow mixed with slum area, considers being an obstacle for a city to grow better, and then we try to create defensive architecture: designing the informal out of cities.
