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.
