Parametricism And Patrick Schumacher

What is parametricism all about? A growing interest has been seen in parametric architecture, as it offers a new approach towards architectural language that is based on advanced computational design techniques that turn into an enabler to create complex geometries. Designers are turning towards this new tool of parametric architecture now more than ever. One of the pivotal terms in the late 90s that came into existence was parametricism; a term hinted by the legend Zaha Hadid. 

Computational Design: NEXT 6.0 Takes An Intuitive Approach For a Better Future

Computational Design: NEXT 6.0 included an enthralling set of masterminds showcasing their versatility in the field of parametric architecture and computational design. From engaging workshops, inspirational keynotes speakers, and Q&A sessions, this provided a first-hand experience to the audience to interact with the design minds and discuss new emerging technologies in art, architecture, design, and manufacturing.

Vernacular Architecture + Parametric Design: Going Back to Our Roots

The demand for new-age, modern architectural designs is rising as urbanization is going more global. Nowadays, designers and architects are constantly pursuing architectural forms based on advanced digital technology. But is it required only to explore parametric design through modern material? Can we create an environmentally sound footprint by including parametric design techniques in our approaches? The current need of the hour is bending traditional values by integrating a significant amount of vernacular architecture with parametric and computational design to achieve a holistic design approach.

8 Structures That Were Impossible to Create Without Parametric Modelling Software

As Jean Nouvel rightly said, “Each New Situation Requires a New Architecture”, Parametric is the future, it truly is – The possible refinement of the design processes powered by digital processes has led to a rethinking of an engineer’s or designer’s approach to various application areas. Prototyping in architecture, parametric modelling software, and designing have all seen exquisite approaches in recent years that have come to be known as ‘Parametric Design.’

Sketching: Not-So-Lost Art of Drawing in Architecture

Paper and sketching have been a constant medium for artists to enunciate their thoughts, visions, ideas, emotions and inspirations. This constant medium has been engrained into different aspects of art, where it gave one a blank canvas to physically manifest these different thoughts and ideas.
