Abstract: Within the context of hierarchical scenarios of gravitational structure formation we describe how an evolving hierarchy of voids evolves on the basis of {em two} processes, the {em void-in-void} process and the {it void-in-cloud} process. The related analytical formulation in terms of a {it two-barrier} excursion problem leads to a self-similarly evolving peaked void size distribution.
