post urban settlements: re—imagining an urban typology and systems of spatial organisations for the future occupants of cape town
Cape Town is already at the half way mark into becoming a “Mega-city”, which is a city typically with a population of more than 10 million people. Unfortunately, like most cities in developing countries that exist within The Global South, the built environment and its infrastructure does not keep up with the growth rate of its occupants. Cape Town begins to show symptoms where it won’t have the capacity to deal with the increase of its inhabitants in the future. Commonly, rules and regulations are bound to be demised if not dealt with early enough, resulting in uncontrolled development and self-organised squatter like invasions.
This dissertation begins to investigate a systematic approach to controlled incremental urban development that will help facilitate efficient and appropriate urban living, working, making and interacting.
