Rectangular Division


There are any algorithms for spatial subdivision, for example: Voronoi divides space into convex hull of polygons, which unmatched too much to normal architectural spaces. The research employs model of multi-agent system, and each plot works as a simple agent similar to rectangle, yet the whole dynamic system presents achievement which couldn’t be implemented by single agent. Parameters, such as, area and number of plots, ratio of each plot mapped to similar rectangle, deformation degree of plots and etc. may be defined before running of the program. All other works will be done by means of self-organization within several seconds. Moreover, the research takes Fabric of Chinese Traditional Urban as an extended example, and the whole Chinese traditional urban is generated within less than 1 second.
