title 
Procedural Reconstruction of NURBS Surfaces 
source 
Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / Yunlin (Taiwan) 2225 April 2009, pp. 597606 
summary 
A potential way to bridge the gap between complex form generation and models for physical manifestations is to panelize NURBS surfaces with polygonal faces. This paper investigates the transition from NURBS surface to a mesh solid through a procedural modeling approach, in the process, illustrating how a discretized planar surface can be reconstructed for form generation and further exploration. The paper promotes this approach as an efficient way to modeling complex forms using an example drawn from real life architecture to demonstrate a generative process with customized restructuring.
