Michael Hansmeyer is an architect who uses L-system growth processes for architectural design. He explores the interpretation of L-system strings into geometric forms, through mappings and turtle graphics. His process is well documented and provides a good picture of the potential of L-system-derived 3D forms. His work shows different methods of mapping strings through vertices, surfaces, objects and groupings of strings and generations. His designs are created in Maya, using MEL (Maya Embedded Language). I would like to experiment with some of the methods he has used in the visual interpretation of strings.
