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.

2. The urban planning theorists define three major aspects of implementing the change in the urban planning. The first one is the financial benefit and the future economic outcomes of the change, the second one is the impact on the infrastructure and the sustainability of the city, and the third one is the reaction of the local communities.

The concept of townscape can be defined as a part of a city that has a significance in setting a character of a city. Townscape is a result of a symbiotic interaction and cross fertilisation to a high degree of economic activities, architectural ideas, cultural and social diversities. Diversity within a uniform environment creates an effect that stimulates the senses and mind to view the environment as a city. The charm of townscape and places is also due to human activity patterns that reflect the socio-cultural values of the
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. 188.8.131.52 Social Aspect Many authors discuss the social effects of urban sprawl (Hillman, 1996; Kelly-Schwartz et. al., 2004; Duany et.

Today the world is focusing on achieving UN Sustainable Developmental Goals (SDGs) of 2030 Agenda for ‘Transforming Our World.’ These goals include ecofriendly environmental conditions supporting sustainable cities and communities. Sustainable urbanism seeks to alleviate the detrimental environmental consequences of conventional residential sprawl; yet there is a perception among experts that in practice many developments fall short of these ideals. Sustainable urbanism is critiqued as conventional suburbia capitalizing on sustainability rhetoric
Madanipour, (1996) talked about ambiguities of understanding urban design and the complexities of perceiving urban spaces. One of the most important features of urban space is to make sense of a city life when walking along any of its streets, to think about the complexity of what is seen , and to wonder about what lies behind buildings facades or beyond the bend of the street. The urban space is full of overlapping and intertwined stories that this collection of people, objects and events offers. There is a continuous change in the urban scene because of constant transformation of landscape, or cityscape around, a mutation that has come to associate with livelihood without movement and change.

In relation to Singapore’s urban development, discuss the benefits of technology’s ‘continuous fields of presence’ in the context of an architectural production cautious about how the ‘altered patterns of resource availability and space use’ impact upon society and space. With its relentless influence on global functions, is the prevalence of Technology on Architecture a desirable cause? Since the establishment of civilisations, Technology, or craft has long played a paramount role in development, but the pervading nature of modern technology has called for an assessment of the degree of consideration offered in multiple disciplines.

1. Introduction The use of cultural activities, goods and services to enhance a city’s image, attract tourism, and promote economic development has be-come a prevailing trend not only in the renowned traditional cultural capitals of the world, but also in places not as well-known for their cultural backgrounds, such as Bilbao, Spain. Many cities have pur-sued the building of museums, cultural destinations, performing arts centers, galleries, and cultural districts, as part of wider urban devel-opment and revitalization strategies.
