A generative sequence is a linearly ordered series of patterns. Examples are given in The Timeless Way of Building, though that book does not yet name them 'generative sequences'. For a while I had called these 'pattern sentences' for lack of a better term. Generative sequence is better, or maybe just sequence, or pattern sequence... Well, in any case, the pivotal word is sequence.


~ In my design breakdown of Genshin Impact I found myself writing such a generative sequence to practice understanding some part of its design in this way.
