Abstract

The project presents the design proposal for Auto-City Theme Park, which focuses on planning and designing a unique interchange spot. Auto-City is located in Juru, Penang. The design proposal is focusing on Phase 3. It is strategically located as it is next to North-South Highway. Since the site is located at commercial area and surrounded by automobile trade centre, it will offer great opportunities for a motor-centric event that can serve the car enthusiasts. However, some issues arise at the area of Auto-City that need to be addressed by the proposal, such as high in carbon emission, less green space and loss of natural heritage. Thus, this study articulates the strategies for a proposal on Auto-City Theme Park derived from several methods, which are observation and interview on special persons and the public. As a result, the concept of “Hybrid” has been implemented in the design proposal to achieve the objectives. There are three key points that basically reflected in Auto- City Theme Park: (a) to promote the concept of corridor development with integrated and centralised development nucleus (b) Restore mangrove habitats and improve regional water quality (c) Rehabilitate Auto-City to reduce the carbon emission through ecological approaches. In short, this design thesis is aimed to create a unique interchange spot Auto-City that is centered around the auto-mobile culture while preserving the ecological balance. Therefore, there are solutions formulated through landscape design to cater all the issue arise.
