Abstract :
Summarizes recent developments in the use of formal grammars in design, in particular shape grammar, which has been used widely over the past decade to understand the spatial composition of designs in architectural and other languages. An extension to the shape-grammar formalism has been developed that allows qualities such as color, texture, material, and function to be incorporated into the rules of a shape grammar. This new grammar, called a color grammar, can be used to represent simultaneously the composition of spatial and qualitative aspects of designs. Discusses issues that arise with the representation of color or other qualities in grammars but do not arise with the representation of spatial form. ;
