Abstract

Generative design based on symbolic grammars is oriented on individual artists. Team work is not supported since single scripts produced by various artists have to be linked and maintained manually with a lot of effort. The main motivation for a collaborative modeling framework was to reduce the script management required for large projects. We achieved even more by extending the design paradigm to a cloud environment where everyone is part of a huge virtual team. The main contribution of the presented work is a web-based modeling system with a specialized variant of a symbolic shape grammar.
