this. Of course to create a foudation for our geometry we will use the L-Systems again. I won't make any friends if I post the definition of the L-System here again. I think most readers will understand it as "cryptic formulas". All you need to know is, that we take the bounding box of a building at the beginning then split it up and shrink parts of it, so it stays in the bounding box. We can use this by utilizing parametric L-Systems that use two vectors as parameters. Those vectors define the minimal and maximal point of a box. In the end we have a long string that is defining a lot of boxes. There also have to be different kinds of boxes. So the L-System knows how it may change them during the generation process... in

That's all folks.
