We present research on the integration of network model and visual analytic paradigms to understand structure effects in urban design decisions on Charleston peninsular. Our goal is to consider the physical environment and social dimensions simultaneously. The architectural brief is a conceptual urban infrastructure proposal for the Clark Parkway site on Charleston Peninsular that directly confronts issues of occupation, circulation, form, and access to downtown facilities. Combining the efforts of twelve designers of architecture and landscape, with a consulting team of city planners and transportation engineers, we develop a taxonomy of location property, physical connectivity. This taxonomy constitutes preliminary network model heuristics for dynamic assessment for in urban design settings.
In this work we successfully applied diverse computational techniques to calculate important quantities in one problem in Statistical Mechanics: the hard disk system in two dimensions. We calculated the global and local orientation order and the time decay constant of the global orientation correlation function. We also computed the Voronoi construction to visuallize the spatial distribution of the local orientation order.
