THE IDEAL CITY6

You now have three tools you can use to design your city. You have "Goals", a "Planning Table", and a "Site". Your problem now is to bring all of it together in a workable way, to make an “Ideal City” that will make sense. From here on, you are on your own.

Here are some suggestions as to how you can go about this.
  1. Think about your site and the layout of your city. That is, think about where you want to put what. Do you want your city to be sprawled over a vast territory or do you want it to be concentrated in a more limited area? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? How does it affect your goals? Think this way about all the other aspects of the layout. Where would you put things such as schools and markets? How about parks? Where would the main roads and highways run?

  2. Think carefully about your goals, as they show you where you want to end up. Then think about how you can achieve each goal. Look at the services and infrastructure columns on your planning table. Will any of these help you achieve your goals? For example, one of your goals may be to keep air pollution low. How could you achieve this goal? In the services column, there could be an item called Public Transport. How would this help you achieve your goal?
