title Generation and Visualization of Architectural Forms with Tekton
source 1980? pp. 68-79 : ill. includes bibliography
summary Tekton is an interactive computer aided architectural design software system. It incorporates graphic input and 3-D modeling capabilities, a potent notational system which is based on an algebra like linguistic model for the representation of transformation and spatial compositions, hidden face elimination, shadowing and texture rendering. The latter feature has been specifically designed for the visualization of architectural forms and materials, through renderings of a free hand drawing quality. They are derived by generative semi-random models, included in the system. The Tekton language allows for interactive unlimited editing and modification of previously generated compositions
