Many ancient East Asian buildings are noted for their immense beauty and intricate design. We introduce a graphics modeling library based on a generalized procedural description we formulated to describe East Asian architecture. By setting the desired parameters, a user can create a building in any of the many different styles, such as Chinese, Japanese or Korean. Different building types, such as palace halls, commoner houses, temples, pagodas, pavilions, ceremonial gates and fences, are described by our modeling system. This large range of traditional East Asian styles and structures is significantly more than those supported by existing systems.
