Abstract

In the planning of apartment houses in Seoul, it is typical that the stereotyped building form strongly regulates the spatial arrangement of the interior. This research therefore attempts to combine two different approaches, namely the formal approach and the spatial approach, for the comprehensive understanding of the architectural grammar. To bridge the technical gap between these two approaches, a new graph-theoretical method is introduced by which configurational information is linked to a shape generation model. From a series of analyses it is found that there exist clear principles that generate all the typical house plans in the city.
