title Finding relationships between movement and tree planting patterns in theme parks
source Living Systems and Micro-Utopias: Towards Continuous Designing, Proceedings of the 21st International Conference on Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA 2016) / Melbourne 30 March–2 April 2016, pp. 135-144
summary Tree planting in design practice is considered simply as void fillers or view blockers. However, for a sustainable design, creat- ing places using trees need to be reconsidered. Going beyond tradi- tional tree plantings in urban environments, an application of compu- tational methods in landscape architecture for the management of the complex system is needed. While computational methods have been extensively applied to buildings, less has been applied to trees. The goal of this paper is to investigate how the presence of trees affects human movement and find out if computational methods can be used for recommending tree planting patterns. We analysed the tree plant- ing patterns in renowned theme parks as an initial research categoriz- ing tree planting patterns, using an agent-based analysis for simula- tion, and comparing the results of the average agent counts in theme park plans without trees and those with trees. We noticed there was a clear distinction between tree planting pattern types and the change in agent counts supporting the qualitative theory in landscape architec- ture. The result of this research can guide theme park designers as well as urban park designers when deciding which tree planting pat- terns to implement for the purpose of controlling pedestrian move- ments.
