THE INTERNAL STRUCTURE OF KUWAIT CITY IN COMPARISON WITH CITY STRUCTURE MODELS: A STUDY IN URBAN GEOGRAPHY

Auther : By: Dr. Waleed Al-Mnais

 

The purpose of this paper is to trace three main topics, i.e.:

    1. to explore and to understand “Models” and to trace their entry to the body of Urban Geography.
    2. the study of “Models” which were adopted in explaining the structures of other cities in the urban world and
    3. Studying Kuwait City elaborately in relation to the “Master Plan of 1952”, and to compare it with particular cities.

The study adopts analytical-comparative approach as it proposes certain hypothesis, i.e. Kuwait City model resembles non-industrial city models, but on the other hand, it could be classified with “high income city models” similar to its neighbouring Gulf cities.

Finally, it ends up with a number of urban facts, the most important of which are:

    1. Kuwait has developed internal urban model and
    2. It had been planned since the end of the twenties of this century.

This urban fact proofs that Kuwait City witnessed urban planning before the application of “Master Plans” in mid-fifties.
