title Planting Design by Simulated Competition - A computational-ecological model for the selection and distribution of plant species on urban roof terraces
source M. Haeusler, M. A. Schnabel, T. Fukuda (eds.), Intelligent & Informed - Proceedings of the 24th CAADRIA Conference - Volume 2, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand, 15-18 April 2019, pp. 31-40
summary This paper investigates ecologically-inspired computational strategies for the intelligent performance based landscape design of urban rooftop gardens. Plant communities in nature form resilient layouts that maximise use of available resources through a process of competitive pressure. Simulating these processes could allow us to design vegetation systems for the built environment that are adapted to variables on site, while meeting our design goals. This paper uses an agent-based model to ask if simulated ecological competition can be used as a computational method for producing effective planting layouts for urban roof terraces. A case study will be conducted to review the performance of the simulation. Through further research we will examine whether these strategies can also optimise for benefits including increased biodiversity, favourable microclimate, and reduced energy and water use.
