Software: Digital Project
At Marks Barfield Architects’ Kew Gardens Treetop Walkway project, a radar survey of tree root activity at proposed foundations and other site constraints were modelled in Digital Project. The design team then used inverse kinematics, a kind of animation, to manipulate the position of the walkway modules while maintaining spatial relationships. This created the desired route through the trees without affecting their roots.
