Expressing Parametric Dependence in Shape Grammars, with an Example from Traditional Chinese Architecture
CAADRIA '99 [Proceedings of The Fourth Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 7-5439-1233-3] Shanghai (China) 5-7 May 1999, pp. 265-274
Shape grammars traditionally generate one product at a time. This leads to difficulties when dependent parameters are involved. Parallel grammars are proposed as a solution. As an example, a grammar is shown which generates plans according to the 12th-century Chinese building manual Yingzao fashi.
