Customised Floating Neighbourhoods: Design Interfaces for Non-experts and Designers to explore Emergent Floating Formations

Hydro-scape Tool for Design of Floating Public Spaces

Urban water spaces, lakes and rivers have played a key role in socio-economic and spatial development of cities throughout centuries. There is an increasing trend in creating floating neighbourhoods and spaces on water worldwide. Design of floating urban spaces is complex; it requires incorporation of advanced computational tools to ensure correct interpretation of environmental conditions to make proper design decisions. In this study, we focus on an investigation of possibilities of floating neighbourhoods to adapt according to rapid changes of environments and demands of their end-users to address deeper engaging of non-experts in the decision and design processes. In so doing, we proposed modular assemblies as a floating neighbourhood, designed and tested computationally using advanced modelling techniques to address potentials of floating systems to grow and create formations in waterfront cities. In this paper we tested 2 possible spatial developments of floating configurations in order to understand non-experts’ preferences captured from an in-house developed computational model in comparison with designer’s digital assembly strategies to deliver various emergent complex scenarios of urban development.
