This report explores a method of augmenting an existing building generation method (more specically a wall generation method) in such a way that internal structure of that building can be extracted. This is used in the generated building model to give it a physical internal structure that, when hit, will collapse and break apart in a realistic manner. The system designed is able to produce video of simulated buildings falling and collapsing.
