summary The design of streets plays an essential role in shaping the quality of our cities. In particular, the design of a street's cross section determines in many aspects the realm of its use, enhancing or reducing its ability for being walkable streets or traffic oriented streets. This paper shows a street cross section design interface where designs are controlled by an ontology and a parametric design system supported by a shape grammar. The ontology provides a semantically ordered vocabulary of shapes, symbols and descriptions upon which the grammar is defined. This paper focuses on the grammar definitions and its translation into a design oriented interface.
