Description
Ecology is complex, and accounting for the variables in planting design can be tricky. To translate this complexity into executable planting designs, the landscape architecture firm OLIN is experimenting with modeling software and other tools. Learn how use of data, analysis, parametric, modeling, agent-based modeling, and visualization combined with current ecological knowledge can achieve a more intuitive approach to design. This lecture is part of the 29th annual New Directions in the American (NDAL) landscape.
