    PARAMETRICISM has been heralded as the new avant-garde in the fields of architecture and design –
    the next ‘grand style’ in the history of architectural movements. Parametric models enable digital
    designers to create complex structures and environments as well as new understandings of space,
    both real and virtual.

    Whether as tools for democratic action or tyrannical spectacle; self- and community-building
    capabilities; a post-humanistic subject; or, the mediatized politics of our various futurisms – all these
    themes are figured within the Parametricist discourse.

    This conference, which included a range of high profile international speakers from architectural
    practice and theory, explored urgent questions that concern the social and political ramifications at
    stake in the evolution of this new design paradigm.

    FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15
    7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
    Keynote Event:
    “Architecture and Politics: Parametricism within or beyond Liberal Democracy?”
