Urbananalysis-1
This research follows the argument that pedestrian traffic in the city can be successfully simulated with agent-based computational models if pedestrians’ movement patterns are appropriately studied first. Furthermore, such simulation models, when finely calibrated and supported by onsite observations, allow planners to evaluate different urban design scenarios. We have carried out a pilot ...

This research paper, presented by Renee Puusepp, Senior Researcher with the Faculty of Architecture, at the CAADRIA 2014 conference, is a continuation of previous work in the field of digital modelling, yet it relies on a completely new modelling method. It combines morphological processes that obey principles of self-organization with environmental analysis into a single, integral simulation ...

This work of research, presented by Renee Puusepp, Senior Researcher with the Faculty of Architecture, at the ACADIA 2014 conference, is essentially a continuation of previous work in the field of digital modelling, but the main emphasis has now been placed on the associations between circulation and form. The article introduces two prototype solutions proposed earlier, the goal of which is ...
