As we have known that natural villages were grown up with their own environment and social structure, in terms of form language they are in random process but in the level duality of village structure they have certain regularity. By using the computer technique we designed a simulator program with environmental parameters and used this program to grow up a village. This village could be similar to the natural village and its space form will not only relate to physical environmental factor but also to local people's method of choosing the land.
