Relating Shapes Via Geometric Symmetries and Regularities

This paper examines the usage of symmetry relations for matching shapes of strongly varying geometry and shows that symmetry-based cues can help in finding correspondences in pairs of shapes that are very hard to relate with previous, geometry-based methods.

Inverse Procedural Modeling of Façade Layouts

This paper addresses the following open research problem: How to generate a deterministic shape grammar to explain a given façade layout? The proposed solution contributes to compression of urban models, architectural analysis, and generation of shape grammars for large-scale urban modeling.
