Shape Grammars Book

Jannis Maroscheck

Generative, Algorithmic, Parametric and AI-Assisted Design Shape Grammars Book by Jannis Maroscheck Shape Grammars is a study on generative shapes, asking: how can unique pieces be mass produced? Jannis Maroscheck designed and programmed 12 production systems that draw an unlimited number of individual graphic shapes. The result is a systematic catalog, a kind of dictionary of shapes, for browsing forms and their formulas. Accumulating 150.000 shapes, sorted from the strictly geometric to the organically free, the book is a useful manual for Designers, Architects and everybody working with shapes, showing the nature of infinite graphic variation through automated design.
