Sector Model - This model was created by Homer Hoyt in 1939 and it suggested that the social zones within a city expand outwards in sectors that follow transportation links (Liu, 2009). The study was based on Chicago, Hoyt could see that higher class housing was built favouring the sought-after Lake Michigan shoreline. This led him to develop the sector theory. The CBD is the centre of the model with the Zone of Transition in a similar location to Burgess's model in Zone B. The lower and middle class residential houses form a circle around Zone B and the CBD, and extend to the outskirts of the urban area.
Corbusier joins both elements, creating suitable habitable spaces with many influences ranging from his 5 Points Toward a New Architecture to the purist style. Internally, he concentrated on creating spaces that demanded attention, moving visitors through the house along an architectural promenade. MAIN SECTION Built in the 16th arrondissment in Paris, the L-shaped plan lies along the south end and east side of a private cul-de-sac. The shape of the structure was influenced by the site.

One example that we see a narrative being told through, is the reflection from the window of the Continuous Monument, which is a superstructure that runs through the city of the New York. This Continuous monument reflects upon the ancient skyscrapers and essentially preserves a memory in time were cities were built. Bernard Tschumi primarily focused one the situations, which he refers to them as sequences and claims that they are cumulative. These frame of sequences come from side by side and they essentially establish a memory of the prior frame and often connect to an experience.

INTRODUCTION Urban design alongside architecture has long since been considered an art form in itself (ref). Many theories have come into play over the decades to develop movements regarding the visual elements of urban environment such as ‘townscape’, ‘garden city’ and ‘city beautiful’ (ref). These theories have since come into the twentieth century as vital concepts and references for urban designers. Urban design, differs from that of architecture as it doesn’t solely base its concerns on how a structure is seen from a fixed point of view. Urban design focuses more on how urban environments and settings are observed from various standpoints, near or far and different angles by the individual and how it’s then interoperated.

Sandburg describes the city in different ways with his poems “Chicago” and “Skyscraper.” Both poems portray the city as lively and dominant, but the poem "Skyscraper" acknowledges drawbacks of the city.

In “Skyscraper” Sandburg describes the skyscraper, which symbolizes the city of Chicago, by writing, “It is the men and women...that give the building a soul of dreams and thoughts and memories" (3). The display of liveliness is the building being described as having dreams, thoughts, and memories because those are characteristics that only live things have such as human beings. In “Chicago” Sandburg says, “come and show me…another city so p...
