A Portrayal of Uncertainty: Revealing Problems and Opportunities of Landscape Change via Sleuth Cellular Automata Model

Urban growth models and cellular automata (CA) become a new representation technique of contemporary sustainable planning, and work almost as an artificial intelligence in urban landscape studies. At this study, SLEUTH cellular automata model is used as a guidance to blend these information techniques with geography and landscape to develop wiser growth decisions. These information techniques almost work as an artificial intelligence in landscape architecture and may lead designers when implemented into a geodesign process. In this research, this notion is elaborated on a case study on the town of Sarıyer, Istanbul, Turkey, which is a unique town with its cultural and environmental values. Three growth scenarios are developed to portrait the problems and opportunities of different growth strategies within a creative, flexible development approach.
