Patterns Applications

  1. 1. Design by Nature: Applications of Patterns<br />Adapted from Lisa Depiano’s slideshow; images from Ethan Roland, Andrew Jones, Lisa Depinao, Kay Cafasso, Brett Joseph, Jay Markert, Darren Dohorty, and others<br />
  2. 2. waves<br />
  3. 3. Pattern Application: Waves<br />Waves: transfer of energy, increase surface area<br />Applications<br />Maximize wavy edge of a pond to increase diversity of microclimates and planting space<br />Lay out beds on contour lines<br />Sea-street to slow the speed of traffic<br />Swales: to catch and store water in landscape<br />

  5. 5. spiral<br />
  6. 6. Patterns Application: Spiral<br />Spiral: regenerative, patterns of growth, concentrates or disperses<br />Applications<br />maximizes the amount of materials that can fit in a given space<br />great for urban permaculture or small space design such as herb spirals<br />

  9. 9. Patterns Application: Overbeck Jet<br />Overbeck Jet: Natural streamliningof fluids and gases past fixed bodies<br />Applications<br />Windbreaks: to be used for moving air and away to channel<br />Flow forms: to add oxygen to water and filter out sediment<br />Keyhole beds: minimize garden pathways and maximize growing area<br />
