summary 
These experiments are based on previous work in developing cellular automata in three dimensions and to suggest architectural forms. Current research is extended by including explicit architectural considerations, such as, individual space units, supporting structure, floor plates, and the development of an envelope. A basic spatial shape is demonstrated in both linear and curved configurations. Also included is a discussion to not only explicitly use mathematically based concepts for form generation but more importantly their interpretation into architectural forms, as well as, the concept of considering architectural elements from the very start of the generative process.
