Abstract

We develop a model for an urban design tool based on discursive grammars. The proposed design synthesis process is consistent with a reflective design process. The generative formalism, called urban grammars, is formally defined and a design methodology for urban design based on urban grammars is proposed and discussed. An urban design is obtained from the application of an arrangement of design patterns called urban induction patterns, each one of them encoded as a discursive grammar replicating a typical recurrent design move. The defined structure is shown to be compatible with the principles of design machines while keeping the reflective structure of the design process.
