summary As designers pose new questions, within the context of computational design, that go beyond geometry and require other information to be included, there is, now more than ever, a need for extensible geometric representations. We believe that such can best be achieved using abstract data types defined over a set of basic operations, common to all data types. At the same time, we must consider the applicability of such a representation with respect to the functionalities of the application. In this paper, we explore these issues of extensibility and applicability as these relate to the questions of standardization and adaptability of representations. As a particular example, we consider an algebraic model, with a corresponding representation, that defines arithmetic operations that operate uniformly and consistently on geometries and on non-geometric attributes of various kinds.
