The Computability of Void Architectural Modeling
New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1987. pp. 141-172 : ill. includes a short bibliography
Solid modeling has proven inefficient as a computational aid to architectural design. A theory and computational method called Void Modeling has been developed to accommodate a class of objects that are containers for other objects. Examples include space enclosures, which are the primitive elements in architectural compositions. The basic computational techniques of void modeling are presented. They show void modeling to be highly efficient in addressing the syntactic and semantic requirements of architectural design
