ABSTRACT

During the epidemiological situation that the world is experiencing from time to time, it has become difficult for cities to adapt to the new epidemiological situation each time. The methodology used in the distribution of public facilities and services in cities has been proved insufficient to meet life needs during epidemic emergencies and changes in environmental and life conditions. This study aims to develop an improved plan in terms of sustainable urban planning applicable to all cities in the world including Jordan taking into account the current life model. The study will be able to be applied to deal with any future epidemics. This study addresses the southern Jordanian city of Aqaba, as a strategically important city, being the only port in the country, by re-planning Aqaba to adapt to any possible epidemic. This study refers to the concepts, ideas and suggestions of many urban architects and planners in the world. A suggested proposal has been concluded of a new urban model consisting of a series of design ideas that form an ideal city in the epidemic and beyond. This new urban model will ensure the well-being of the citizens and will also be able to adapt quickly to existing and pre-planned areas, to be equipped with facilities specifically designed to meet the needs of each region, ensuring a good standard of living even during emergency periods.
