Abstract

This report describes the application of mesh-subdivision algorithms in the context of CGA shape, a shape grammar for Computer Generated Architecture. Constituting a procedural modeling approach, CGA shape allows the creation of models under moderate effort, which can furthermore be varied easily by the possibility to parametrize the rules of CGA shape. At the Vienna University of Technology a CGA shape implementation is being designed and extended by a skeleton system, allowing an easier variation of poses for humanoid models. In this report we follow this idea and want to further extend CGA shape by meshsubdivision in order to achieve a higher quality and complexity in the resulting models. We discuss mesh-subdivision in general and evaluate the results of an implementation in the existing software system of the Vienna University of Technology.
