English abstract:
The creation of visually convincing architectural models using traditional modeling methods is a labor intensive task. Procedural modeling techniques strive to reduce the manual work an artist has to perform when modeling architecture. In previous work, those techniques were successfully applied to the creation of architecture. However, previous methods have a limited usability, as they are based on text editing. This makes modeling unintuitive and diminishes the advantages of procedural modeling.

Therefore, methods to interactively create procedural architecture, using a graphical user interface, are explored in this thesis. As interactivity also requires real-time rendering performance, methods to accelerate the generation of architecture are investigated. Further, the thesis provides a detailed report on previous procedural architecture generation techniques.
