Dynamic urban development simulation models are usually
separate to urban planning tools making it difficult to test the
consequences of urban planning variants directly without
switching between expert tools. This paper presents an approach
to integrating system dynamics simulation at various
scales and abstractions in the visual programming environment
Grasshopper for Rhino3D. We demonstrate how Grasshopper
may be used with additional customized components
as a flexible integrated urban planning and simulation framework.
For this purpose, we present three urban planning
model examples: The first is a classical system dynamics
simulation that abstracts from spatial elements. The second
adds spatial relations in terms of distances between locations
in a grid. The third shows how to represent a city in more
details and adds a network analysis module for more precise
distance calculations. As result, we demonstrate a highly
flexible approach for integrating simulations for various aspects
that predict the behavior of an urban system in order to
facilitate more sustainable urban planning processes. The
main drawback of this new level of flexibility is the relatively
slow execution time for complex simulations.
