  abstract =     "An evolutionary approach to the automatic generation
                 of 3D building topologies is presented. Genetic
                 programming is used to evolve shape grammars. When
                 interpreted, the shape grammars generate 3D models of
                 buildings. Fitness evaluation considers user-specified
                 criteria that evaluate different aspects of the model
                 geometry. Such criteria might include maximising the
                 number of unique normals, satisfying target height
                 requirements, and conforming to supplied shape
                 contours. Multi-objective evaluation is used to analyse
                 and rank model fitness, based on the varied
                 user-supplied criteria. A number of interesting models
                 complying to given geometric specifications have been
                 successfully evolved with the approach. A motivation
                 for this research application is that it can be used as
                 a generator of conceptual designs, to be used as
                 inspirations for refinement or further exploration.",
