By the inclusion of the computers into design process; numerous design disciplines became capable of working with undiscovered - new forms. With the help of new geometrical systems and computers, a wide variety of work ranging from chaos science - cosmology, to micro - atomic formations as the down scale are figured out.Quasicrystals, as micro-scale fictions are one of the complex geometries which can form design and are among the above-mentioned variety. In natural conditions, quasicrystals, which are seen in patterns of atomic scale, are also known as complex systems formed by simple geometrical systems.In this thesis, quasicrystals are evaluated in the realm of generative architectural designs via computer aided design methods. The main fiction in the thesis, in preliminary design process and in parallel with this approach is based on the theory of the generating new form alternatives. In this direction, quasicrystal patterns have been generated with the approach of shape grammars and the results have been disscussed. The main backbone of the discussions is contexts that make up the dynamics of todays architecture such as creativity - technology - design.
