Leaf Density and Tree Growth
This definition is an abstracted forest with trees made of spirals that can grow in height as they age. The number of leaves on the trees can also be controlled to represent changes in the density of the canopy over the seasons.
The next step is to attach this forest to the given topography and analyze sun angles through the canopy to decide where we will create a clearing for our picnic area. We will then design a covering for the picnic area, inspired by the tree canopy, which adjusts with the seasons to maintain a comfortable space for users.
