The Smart Architect is an innovative intelligent system that can generate ancient Chinese architectures of similar styles or structures automatically. Using an ontology-based approach to analyze different architectural styles, the system converts geometry primitives into semantic architecture components. The modeling process can be performed at semantic levels and requires only certain knowledge in the corresponding architectural domain. In addition, a granular-based knowledge-refining method obtains more accurate knowledge with respect to the specific domains.
