Using Logic to Specify Shapes and Spatial Relations in Design Grammars

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

Shape algebraic representations provide several advantages over more traditional geometric representations. The use of predicate logic formulations of shape and spatial relations provides a natural, intuitive way to extend shape representations of the shape grammar formalism .to provide generalized, parametric grammars.
