The paper describes further research relating to an Interactive Evolutionary Design system (IEDS) with emphasis upon extending it to support free-form design. A generative feedback loop is also introduced which, when using a component based representation, extracts user preferences regarding the various components at run-time. This information is fed back into the system to enhance the quality of the generated solutions. The background work leading to the freeform version of the IEDS for urban
