GRAPE

GRAPE

A parametric shape grammar implementation

Grasl T and Economou A

An imple­men­ta­tion of a shape gram­mar inter­preter is described. The under­ly­ing graph-theoretic frame­work is briefly dis­cussed to show how alter­na­tive rep­re­sen­ta­tions from graph the­ory includ­ing graphs, over­com­plete graphs and hyper­edge graphs can sup­port some of the intu­itions han­dled in shape gram­mars by direct visual com­pu­ta­tions with shapes. The result­ing plu­gin imple­mented in Rhino, code-named GRAPE, is briefly described in the end.
