Abstract

This article shows the result of generating a 3d model of Loggia Rucellai in Florence using a shape grammar from Leon Batista Alberti's treatise De Re Aedificatoria and it is a test bed for further generations of buildings using Alberti's rules. It shows the accuracy of such grammar to help tracing the degree of influence of Alberti's treatise in Renaissence Portuguese architecture. Rucellai palace facade ornaments and its interior loggia where used to analyze and compare the Loggia generation accuracy. A Grasshopper script is used for the automation of the rules derivation. An evaluation process is presented and its use aims to better understand the deviations between the treatise and the Loggia grammars.
