30 virtual environments (3DVE) are networked environments designed using the place metaphor. As Computer-aided Architectural Design (CAAD) tools, they have shown promising potentials in areas such as design simulation, distant team works, and interdisciplinary design collaboration. This paper presents Generative Design Grammars (GDG) for dynamic and autonomous design in 3DVE. GDG extend the current design grammar research by providing an integral framework with powerful agent reasoning and design simulation components that automate and optimise the generative design process. For designers, the emergence of generative design tools such as GDG offers cutting-edge technologies to exploit alternative ways of designing; but at the same time imposes new challenges, redefining their roles in design.
