Abstract: The research described in this paper is part of a larger on-going project that aims at incorporating shape grammars (Duarte 2001) with an existing generative design system based on genetic algorithms (Caldas 2001) within a real architectural context - Marrakech Medina as its architectural precedent -(Rocha, 1995 ). The ultimate goal is to develop a computational tool for generating original urban and housing configurations that could be more sustainable and energy efficient, while respecting certain cultural and architectural qualities
