Form making is an important and creative act in design. Architects often draw shapes to find design solutions and solve problems. Shape Grammar systems provide automatic shape generation following designer defined rules. Research in Shape Grammar has focused on analyzing existing designs and generating new design patterns (Stiny 1972, Flemming 1990). In this paper, we describe our creative multi-user shape-generative system called ArchiDNA.
