  abstract =     "This chapter builds on earlier work using genetic
                 programming (GP) and a Lindenmayer system (L-system)
                 representation within the sphere of generative
                 architectural design. L-systems are explained briefly
                 and two contrasting embryology strategies are outlined.
                 Artificial selection is discussed, and the wide
                 divergence of opinion as to what might constitute an
                 architectural configuration illustrated. Examples of
                 successful single-goal evolution are presented, with
                 the space syntax measure of integration investigated as
                 a generic identifier of architectural form. Dual-and
                 multigoal evolution are considered within the context
                 of the architectural design discipline. It is suggested
                 that an appropriate response to the complex nature of
                 architectural organisms is the development of a
                 symbiotic coevolutionary metaphor where interwoven
                 systems within architecture are viewed as mutual
                 species. The classification of these species leads
                 toward a more architecture-specific genetic code. An
                 outline of future work intended to develop such a
                 representation begins with the identification of a
                 naive architectural form representation and summarizes
                 a gradual process for the refinement of this
                 representation into a genuinely useful encoding of
                 architectural form.",
