A Grammatical Approach to Autonomous Design in 3D Virtual Worlds Using Generative Design Agents

Abstract: 3D virtual worlds are networked environments designed using the place metaphor. 3D virtual worlds as Computer-aided Design (CAD) tools have shown promising potentials in areas such as design simulation, distant team works as well as interdisciplinary design collaboration. Recent developments in collaborative 3D virtual worlds focus on interactivity, flexibility and adaptability. Rather than creating virtual environments in which the 3D objects have intelligent behaviors, we take a different approach to develop an agent model that is associated with an individual designer in a 3D virtual world as a personal design agent. This paper presents Generative Design Agents (GDA), a kind of rational agents that dynamically and automatically generate, simulate and modify designs in 3D virtual worlds. The core of a GDA’s design component is a generative design grammar that is able to generate designs capturing a specific style in 3D virtual worlds. 3D virtual worlds augmented with GDAs provide a grammatical approach to developing autonomous generative design systems.
