Work for its completion is currently in progress. The graphics included with the examples are ILCON outputs. While the model and the implementation incorporate a distinction of wire-frame versus face-frame objects, as discussed in Section 2, ILCON, at its current state, has not yet been connected to a hidden line algorithm. Therefore, all graphics (wire frames and face frames alike) are with all lines visible. The implementation is through a Tektronix 4014 Graphics Terminal, connected to an IBM 370.

The model, while it also provides for irregular compositions, it facilitates the derivation of standard orthogonal arrangements by the use of the junction operator, which does not require the explicit definition of positioning coordinates for each element in the composition. 1. INTRODUCTION Currently, the complete description of the physical layout of a building and its structural details can be stored in the computer. The efficiency of the data structures, the amount of memory required, and the type of storage facilities to be utilized remain important issues.
