Procedural Building Implementations

A very interesting and valuable approach is to generate buildings automatically, with minimal hand-effort in specifying and locating them.

Existing Tools and Projects

See the CAD Software page for some commercial software for manually designing buildings with some degree of procedural/parametric automation, in particular ArchiCAD and Revit.  Also, some of the general-purpose terrain software on the Commercial Software page have significant building-specific functionality.
