    1818 3 Before 1824 Riyadh consisted of a number of small villages that spread throughout the area of Wadi Hanifa Riyadh underwent another period of growth beginning in 1902 when it was restored by King Abd al Aziz bin Abd al Rahman Al Faisal Al Sa ud r 1902 1953 often called Ibn Sa ud the founder of the third Saudi state which evolved into the present day Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Thus Riyadh notes al Hathloul is a twentieth century city It has grown from an area of one square kilometer and a population of 14 000 people in 1902 to an area of 1 500 square kilometers and a population of 4 300 000 people in 2000 4 Riyadh s Development during the first half of the twentieth century Al Hathloul went on to present the old city of Riyadh as it appeared in the early twentieth century figure 1 The one square kilometer city was enclosed by defended city walls figure 2 The walls were built of mud and bricks had a height of almost 8 meters and incorporated towers and defended gates One of the main structures located inside the walls of Old Riyadh is al Masmak Fortress also called al Masmak Palace figure 3 which was the first part of the city to be overtaken by King Abd al Aziz in 1902 and which was renovated in recent times 5 Qasr al Hukm the Justice Palace figure 4 the seat of King Abd al Aziz is located in the center of the old city Al Masjid al Jami the Congregational Mosque of Old Riyadh which often is referred to as Jami Turki bin Abdallah the Mosque of Turki bin Abdallah was located close to the palace a common arrangement in traditional Islamic cities Furthermore the mosque was linked to the palace by means of a bridge The center of Old Riyadh notes al Hathloul was rebuilt more than once over the course of the past one hundred years as shall be seen below Close to the palace and mosque the Ministry of Finance as well as other governmental buildings were constructed However those were torn down during the early years of the second half of the twentieth century Sahat al Adl the Justice Square figure 5 is a major urban space in the center of the old city of Riyadh where commercial and communal activities used to take place Al Hathloul mentioned that in the mid 1930s Riyadh extended for the first time outside the walls of the old city This was marked by the construction of Qasr al Murabba al Murabba the square Palace in which King Abd al Aziz established himself in 1937 The palace was located some 2 kilometers to the north of the old city of Riyadh and extended over an area of 16 hectares It gained its name al Murabba the square from its square 400 by 400 meter form Al Murabba was a kind of walled palatial complex that

    8 Regulation of water conservation 9 Examples of Landscapes in Tucson 9 1 Constructed elements in landscapes 9 2 Natural elements of landscapes 10 Towards a More Sustainable Landscape 11 Endnotes 12 List of Figures INTRODUCTION Margaret Livingston 1 presented in this public lecture a number of ideas on landscaping for water scarce environments in Tucson Arizona She began by stating that since her audience does not primarily consist of landscape architects and related professionals it would be best to present a broad overview of the subject Livingston also emphasized the relationship between Tucson and Amman She mentioned that in spite of the numerous differences between Tucson and Amman there also are many similarities between both cities in terms of environments as well as the social economic and cultural factors that influence those environments Such similarities make an exposure to the experience of Tucson useful and of importance to specialists as well as the public in Amman In fact Livingston made numerous comparisons between the two locations during the course of her lecture Livingston s lecture was divided into three major sections The first section provides an introduction to Tucson It deals with Tucson s natural environment and native plants and animals and watercourses occurring throughout the city and the human influences affecting them These range from cultural influences to historical and current land uses The second section deals with the issue of water conservation and discusses how Tucson has addressed this issue The third section presents different landscape solutions that have been utilized in Tucson TUCSON S ENVIRONMENT The city of Tucson is located in southern Arizona one of the states of the southwestern United States It is located in the Sonoran Desert which in turn is embraced by two other deserts the Mojave also called Mohave Desert to

  • DECONSTRUCTING BEIRUT'S RECONSTRUCTION: 1990 - 2000 » CSBE
    Periphery Robert Saliba 1 began this lecture by stating that much controversy has surrounded the reconstruction of Beirut s Central District BCD over the past decade 2 However he believes that the center has evolved beyond the stage of controversy into a fait accompli and that the controversy meanwhile has moved from the center to the periphery This is because post war Beirut outside the central district has evolved as one of the more congested chaotic and expensive urban areas in the region At the same time the city s slowly developing and partially razed central district with its newly rehabilitated conservation area provides the only adequate open space in Beirut besides the corniche to which people can escape This has initiated a new dynamic of re appropriating the city center mainly by pedestrians At the same time this development of the central district has raised questions about the practice of urban conservation and development outside the city center which is characterized by ongoing destruction and poor quality face lifting of what remains of Beirut s late Ottoman and French mandate residential townscape To Saliba the debate on the reconstruction of the Beirut Central District until recently was defined primarily as one between a promotional approach advocated by the private sector and a remedial bureaucratic approach advocating public sector intervention Although the experiences in bureaucratic planning that have taken place over the past half a century primarily have proved to be ineffective it is still too early to assess either the positive or negative impact of private corporate planning on both the economic and social levels Examining the Central District within the Context of the National Recovery Plan Saliba notes that the media and the public generally have reduced Lebanon s post war reconstruction to Beirut s reconstruction which in

  • E-topia: The Future of Cities in the Digital Age » CSBE
    Internet and World Wide Web era and which constitutes an early study of the relationship of these technologies to the evolution of the city The third book High Technology and Low Income Communities with Donald A Schon and Bish Sanyal Cambridge Mass MIT Press 1999 deals with the effects of telecommunications technology on low income communities and specifically with issues such as social equity and economic development This third book addresses both the developing world and economically marginalized communities in an advanced country such as the United States Mitchell indicated that to better understand the effects of digital communications on the city a few general remarks should first be made about the historical evolution of cities Here he states that human settlements historically developed at points of opportunity They therefore emerged at locations featuring scarce and desirable resources such as water and access to transportation routes As such settlements developed and grew in size the interaction among their inhabitants increasingly became the glue that held the settlements together Consequently new economic social and cultural opportunities developed in these settlements and these opportunities rather than merely the physical and geographic characteristics that initially allowed a specific settlement to emerge became the new engine that powered the growth and development of these settlements Also such settlements developed infrastructure networks that were absolutely crucial for allowing them to grow in size and complexity The better known examples of such infrastructure networks which distribute resources and opportunities throughout the settlement include water supply waste disposal sanitation electrical power and transportation systems The importance of infrastructure networks emerged early on in the history of human settlements Ancient Rome provides one of the more famous and beautiful examples of how such networks functioned about two thousand years ago The city had a complex street network underneath which were located highly sophisticated water supply and sewage systems Mitchell added that throughout history we have seen the introduction of new kinds of infrastructure networks into human settlements This is especially evident in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries when we have seen the introduction of new transportation methods as well as electric power and telephone networks Such new developments not only have allowed settlements to grow further but also have allowed for additional diversity and complexity in the lives of their inhabitants They have redistributed resources and opportunities and have allowed many cities to function in different ways This means that the locations and organization of activities in the city begin to change Such a process of development is one that Mitchell identified as fragmentation and recombination As new networks are introduced established building types and urban patterns that had been based on preexisting infrastructure networks begin to fragment and to recombine To illustrate this point Mitchell provided a number of examples The first is the introduction of piped water into a traditional village a process that has been taking place throughout the world over the past century or so Before the introduction of piped water the inhabitants of
