A symbolic model for shape emergence
Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design 24 : 509-526
This paper presents a shape representation at the symbolic level that extends the properties of shape in 2D and 3D using the same formalism. This representation is based on the concept of infinite maximal lines and planes. Constraints on their properties are used to define shapes and objects. A process model of shape emergence which relies on this representation is developed. Data-driven and hypothesis-driven approaches to shape and object emergence are demonstrated.
