11315 Architectural Communications: Parametric Modelling





The computational capacity of digital technologies has led architects to explore increasingly complex forms and systems. This, in turn, has led to the development of associative parametric design software, which enables designers to concurrently generate and test complex form and relationships while resolving constructional and structural issues to an incredible degree of dimensional accuracy.

Building on a strong foundational base in the use of basic modelling software, this subject aims to introduce students to associative parametric design software, both as an aid to an iterative design process, a method of design exploration and a tool to resolve complex form through the testing and refinement of non-standard architectural systems.
