Parametricism: A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design

"What is the impact of digital technologies on the design and analysis of cities? For the last 15 years, the profound impact of computer–aided techniques on architecture has been well charted. From the use of standard drafting packages to the more experimental use of generative design tools and parametric modelling, digital technologies have come to play a major role in architectural production. But how are they helping architects and designers to operate at the urban scale? And how might they be changing the way in which we perceive and understand our cities?"

 

The AD issue "Digital Cities" was guest–edited by Neil Leach and published in 2009. It included the present article "Parametricism: A New Global Style for Architecture and Urban Design" written by Patrik Schumacher, where he defends the suitability of parametric design for large-scale urbanism.

 

Schumacher's original text here:

Although more focused on architecture and technology, it's worth having a look at "A History of Parametric", written by Daniel Davis and published in 2013, where he thoroughly covers the origins and development of parametricism applied to design.
