The access to the amenities such as restaurants and essential facilities such as hospitals is important. At this point, the way stations can ease the access to these facilities for the residents of the urban areas. Thus, it is important to organize the urban areas to ensure the infrastructural, economic, and social development of the
Some people moved to urban areas for good entertainment. They had enjoyed their life in urban areas by getting great facilities. There are three main reasons why people move to urban area: for better education, for health care and for good employment. Starting with, one reason that people moved to urban area is for better education. When people wants to get higher education, they have moved into urban areas.
The socio-economic factors are very important in the promotion of a denser form, as they play an important role. For the idea of the compact city to be successful, social and economic considerations need to be given equal weight to environmental concerns, and the compact city needs to be controlled and managed appropriately. There is a belief that urban managers should adopt a realistic and balanced approach, and the compactness should include the intensification in a wider variety of settlements, including sub-centers and suburbs, which could be connected by efficient transport links. 184.108.40.206 Social Aspect Many authors discuss the social effects of urban sprawl (Hillman, 1996; Kelly-Schwartz et. al., 2004; Duany et.
City planners began to take the homeless population of their cities into consideration, but not necessarily in a good way. These planners now design public spaces to be more hostile. For instance, there’s a trend of putting too many armrests down a bench, now, “Arm rests, for instance, indeed provide spaces to rest arms, but they also prevent people from lying down or sitting in anything but a prescribed position (99% Invisible). This ‘style’ of architecture deters homeless people specifically, or even just someone looking to lay down. With this new breed of city planners and architects, “Most of these goals seem noble, but the overall effect is somewhat demoralizing, and follows a potentially dangerous logic with respect to designing for public spaces.
Urban growth has been inevitable throughout the time and caused population to compete for spaces. It has been estimated the population will be increasing in the coming years. Sustaining the city is important so that the future generations of the city can live in a healthy, social and political stable environment. Kaji also (2003) mentioned that, compact city is an opportunity to form a sustainable city by two ways which are saving resources and energy and renewing the inner city to maintain the expansion of suburban in urban area. He also said that compact city and is associated by the interference of less dependent on automobile.
Introduction Planning and community is a unity which cannot be separated. The basic purpose of planning is to improve the quality of community. It can be realized if planner with other stakeholders can accommodate the community needs on a planning. A planner was required to be a good communicator, negotiator and conflict solver in the community. This is line with was stated by Allemdinger & Houghton (2009) that planners work with people and should focus more and that aspect of planning.
Ever since the dawn of civilisation the design of a city did not only depend on the functional aspect of the city but also depends on the aesthetic aspect. Every city was designed to be attractive and look good. However with the evolution of design around the world and the increasing number of cities (especially the international ones), the concept of well designed city doesn’t work as efficiently as it used to. In fact, well designed/good looking city doesn’t necessarily mean it is a well know, attractive city. Hence some cities look amazing but it’s not recognised internationally by the the public.
Annex A. Moving Up the Urban Sustainability Pathway A city’s sustainability focus likely reflects both its place along the urban development pathway and its level of ambition for the future. To help cities determine what their sustainability focus should include, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC 2015) proposes three possible lenses through which they can examine themselves: • Basics. At a first level, a city must provide basic services to its citizens and create sufficient infrastructure for its growth - especially health, housing, air quality and public transport. • Differentiators.
ART FOR URBAN SCAPE Tapasya Mukkamala 1216511116 4/5 B.Arch Semester-VII Gitam School of Architecture Gitam University 1. ABSTRACT This report gives brief illustrations about the importance of urban/civic art in urban spaces. Art plays a role in building up the image of a city. Art installations at major nodes become a way finding tool of a city. Urban art also boosts the economic and tourism of a city.
• In the conceptual level this urban vernacular conveyed total harmony with urban life style, unifying socio cultural aspirations of the individual and the entire community. • The thought process for architectural design in “Urban Vernacular” will open up few realities so that they are appropriate for the changing social order of the present. 5. CASES Streets in a city are the most happening grounds of perceiving a culture and its people. Street vendors are main catalyst of such cultural amalgamation.
