Generative Methods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The concepts of parametric design, emergence, L-systems, shape grammars, morphogenesis, and procedural modelling offer vast potential not only for optimisation purposes but particularly also for the creative design process. Far from being destined to supplant the architect, generative methods can serve the architect to create extraordinary geometries both in terms of design and functionality.
