summary 
In 1968 Aristid Lindenmayer proposed a series of mathematical constructs as a foundation for an axiomatic theory of form development. Since that time, Lindenmayer Systems or Lsystems have evolved and found many practical applications in the computer visualization area. Generation of fractal imagery, realistic modeling and high quality visualization of organic forms and even music generation are now possible with the assistance of Lsystems. But, is it possible to use Lsystems in architectural design? Why would anyone use Lsystems in architectural design? How would one use them? What could one expect from their use?
