This model grows land use patterns that emerge as a result of land-use compatibilities stablished in urban development plans, land topography, and street networks. It contains urban brushes to paint streets and land uses as a way to learn about urban pattern emergence through free experimentation.
The model takes its growth algorithm from a model called “Structure from randomness 2” found in the Netlogo model library. This model, in turn, is based on another model found in the book “Cities and Complexity” by Michael Batty.
