His book helped the Progressive movement to take shape. Progressives argued that planning should deal with all major problems of the American cities and proposed a system of zoning. In the beginning the zoning was focusing on building sizes however a more modern approach deals with land use, population and housing densities, parks thus leading in to more complex zoning systems. (Fleissig & Jacobsen, 2002). In modern era, the zoning played a crucial role in the flourishing of the urban planner profession.
In communities they emphasize contemporary design structure, engineers often renovate or rebuild more creative structures where older, more traditional structures once stood. The importance of civil engineer is crucial because they are central figures in the community development. Without their unique talents the communities would not grow and prosper. Buildings and roads provide the basis of the city's infrastructure. All of this is provided by them, but they use their skills to optimize performance and efficiency of community systems.
A presentation given on the 9th of January 2014 as a part of the SF/JS Field Trip As modern day pilgrims to the ancient city of Canterbury can attest, the walls of this epicentre of British history remain quite formidable despite their age and contemporary importance. While many centres around the English southeast were constructed with large circuit defences, such as Rochester and Winchester, the extent to which Canterbury’s defensive circuits have survived and adapted is remarkable. My presentation on the medieval walls and gates of the city hopefully charts the complicated and storied development of these magnificent shields of masonry from their origin to the modern period. The simplistic attribution of “Medieval” to Canterbury’s walls is, in many ways, a misnomer. The Walls we see today not only integrate but develop upon a millenia of structures and thus to accredit them as merely medieval is to do them an injustice.
The Indus valley civilization is dated around 3000 B.C. Thus since the last 5000 years. India has had an urban civilization. The existence of an urban civilization presumes the existence of well developed techniques of architecture and construction. These techniques would no doubt have had been systematically stated in record books for transmitting them to the later generations as well for being used as reference media for actual construction.

Such as the cylindrical shape of Forum Boarium, this was an original shape for the Romans along with the roof. Eventually the Hellenistic architecture was being pushed out by Romanization. When Rome gained leadership over Neighboring countries and was starting to unite the cities, in about 300 B.C. Rome started to gain it’s own unique architectural culture. When Rome was expanding they build grids of roads, and with this advance Rome had a much greater ability to build massive projects.
