title A Computable Language of Architecture: Description of Descriptor Language in Supporting Compound Definitions
source Computation: The New Realm of Architectural Design [27th eCAADe Conference Proceedings / ISBN 978-0-9541183-8-9] Istanbul (Turkey) 16-19 September 2009, pp. 431-438

summary Language is a particular kind of formal structure. It allows systematic approach to the subject matter for the speaker while providing an exploratory space to reason with. In this paper, we present a simple language that describes spatial qualities of architecture based on the geometry of built elements. We also provide a detailed description of the components and the structure of our language and show how one might construct compound definitions using the language. We then discuss the implication of constructing a language and how we can use it as a tool and research model in the study of architecture.
