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
Here are some suggestions as to how you can go about this.
- 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?
- 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?
