  abstract =     "In a previous paper, we presented BlindBuilder, a new
                 representation formalism for Evolutionary Design based
                 on construction plans. As for other indirect encoding
                 approaches in the literature, BlindBuilder makes it
                 possible to easily represent possible solutions but
                 makes it difficult to perform structural optimisation.
                 While satisfying results are provided, it becomes more
                 and more difficult to build larger structures during
                 the course of evolution. This is due to the high
                 disruptive rate of variation operators as construction
                 plans grow. In this paper, we provide an analysis of
                 such a problem and propose new construction operators
                 to avoid this. Then, we perform extensive experiments
                 so as to identify the key parameters and discuss the
                 advantages, limitations and possible perspectives of
                 the indirect encoding approach.",
