An information model has been developed for the study of traditional Malay houses (TMH) of the bumbung panjang type that is capable of being implemented in a computing environment. The information model consists of interpretive and generative sub-systems. The interpretive sub-system utilizes the formal approach of shape grammar in the analysis of the forms and spaces of the TMH while the generative sub-system utilizes the construction knowledge of the TMH to create the shapes of the TMH. This information model is implemented in a scene-graph modeling package which allow the users to modify design parameters such as type of spaces and length of timbers to either recreate an existing TMH or create a new TMH. The prototype implementation of the information model is currently limited to the timber-frame structure of the TMH.
