summary 
Cellular automata offer a compelling model for complex generative design. However, the abstraction of classical cellular automata models hinders their application in the design process, particularly at small scales where regular grid matrices do not provide an adequate approximation. This paper presents some tests in appling these generative properties to a real site using irrregular tesselation adapted to the terrain and an spreadsheet interface that translate design concerns into set of neighborhood and state behaviors with the goal of generating massing diagrams for an urban masterplan. The development of the model over time is also presented as a visual reference that aids in comparing different parameter sets and informing the design process.
