Design types (Parametric Design)
There are two types of design lay-outs available for a Parametric Design. The design type dictates the algorithm used to place the defined elements.
Road aligned design
In and around the selected area, roads are sought. The new roads in the design are connected to the existing roads. The roads divide the space in blocks. Waterways, parking spaces and the sidewalk are placed alongside the roads. Each rectangle consists of buildings, gardens and public green. Public green can also be placed alongside a road. This design type can be best used for creating spatial plans which consists of buildings.
In the defined area for the design, a grid of circular selections are created. This design type can be best used for creating spatial plans which consist of for example trees or wind turbines but not any buildings, since the circular selections translate to circular Buildings. For a spaced design it is recommended to remove the road, water, parking, sidewalk and garden functions to create a design for a tree or wind turbine area.
