The design of complex structures which benefit the usage of inhomogeneous properties is a very difficult task. In this paper we present a novel approach in which we synthesize the design of structures by mimicking two fundamental processes from biology - Evolution and Development. We will show that by using these two processes in a computational model, we are able to evolve high performance structures. These structures contain a high degree of complexity from a topological aspect and from a materials distribution aspect. This degree of complexity is difficult or even impossible to achieve by ordinary design methods.
