This paper discusses a new method for the automated synthesis of structures. By creating a framework to implement the synthesis, several methods are compared for the application of building tall self-supporting towers. These towers are evaluated in a physics simulation and comprised of multiple nodes and connections. In this paper, a new agent-based method is compared to existing search methods including random search, A*, and Hill-Climbing search. With the agents making local changes to nodes in the tower, the method achieves better results with less time and memory.
