Shape grammars

    Shape Grammars have been a central research line of the Design and Computation Group since its beginning. It is understood by shape grammars a logical system for describing visual form in its different meanings. Numerous projects and international publications have been developed at DCG about this topic. Besides researching on these themes DCG is also sharing the latest developments in the discipline by teaching classes about Shape Grammars. These classes provide students with theoretical and practical tools that allow the understanding and description of shape according to the generative principles of grammars, which can later be translated into a programming language as a tool for the exploration of design languages.
