Parametric software has enabled architects and designers to create structures, buildings and environments that were impossible to imagine twenty years ago. Architecture today is influenced by mathematical codes, functional principles found in biological forms, and broader environmental and climatic conditions – all of which can be mimicked and controlled by digital design tools allowing for highly efficient ways of designing. But what is the future of such digitally based design and what are going to be the defining parameters of design in the future?
Dr Marcos Cruz chaired a panel discussion exploring the evolution, future possibilities, as well as pros and cons of parameter control in creating architecture.
