given site. You are required to propose the idea based on your
SWOT analysis to make it a better urban transportation hub and

connectivity linkages.

Determine what are the factors or issues to be improved or

elements to be included. Determine what to link from and to the
transportation hub. How would you improve it? You are required
to justify your suggestions, supported by case studies or
references from books or other resources.
The proposal should focus on improving the urban planning,
public spaces, about people, jobs and activities, basic public
facilities, transportation, connectivity, sense of place and green
sustainable initiatives.

The new proposal should also consider; the atmosphere, the

vistas, layouts, arrangements, zoning, walkability, infrastructures,
shapes and form, nodes, green areas, edges, pathways, visuals,
squares, promenade, shades, public furniture's, signage's,
waterfront, walkways, amphitheater, interesting spaces and
activities, urban intervention etc.
By improving the connectivity you could determine the type of
new urban public spaces to propose. Propose it on plan with
supporting visuals and illustrations. (drawing plan) PLUS
THAT IS SIMILAR especially during tutorials
For the final students are required to prepare presentation boards
