Figure 1 : Left: This image shows several buildings generated with split grammars, a modeling tool introduced in this paper. Right: The terminal shapes of the grammar are rendered as little boxes. A scene of this complexity can be automatically generated within a few seconds. Abstract This paper presents a new method for the automatic modeling of architecture. Building designs are derived using split grammars, a new type of parametric set grammar based on the concept of shape. The paper also

The paper also introduces an attribute matching system and a separate control grammar, which offer the flexibility required to model buildings using a large variety of different styles and design ideas. Through the adaptive nature of the design grammar used, the created building designs can either be generic or adhere closely to a specified goal, depending on the amount of data available.
