  abstract =     "We present an algorithmic growth process that is an
                 extension of Lindenmayer Map L-systems. This growth
                 process relies upon a set of rewrite rules, a map axiom
                 and a geometric interpreter which is integrated with a
                 3D simulated environment. The outcome of the growth
                 process is a digital surface in 3D space which has
                 grown within and in response to its environment. We
                 have developed a complementary evolutionary algorithm
                 that is able to take over the task of generating the
                 rewrite rules set for a growth process. Using a
                 quantitative multiobjective fitness function that
                 evaluates a variety of surface properties, the
                 integrated system (evolutionary algorithm and growth
                 process) can explore and generate diverse and
                 interesting surfaces with a resemblance of organic
                 form. The algorithms have been implemented to create a
                 design tool for architects called Genr8.",
