Publisher's description: Parametric design is a form of computer-aided design, in which geometrical elements, such as architectural components, are defined and interconnected by variable attributes known as parameters. It counts as one of the most advanced methods in schools of architecture, and is quickly becoming a standard in day-to-day architectural practice. Long the domain of mechanical engineering and automotive design, then explored by international avant-garde architecture, parametric models can now be used as innovative tools for creative and efficient design work. This book explains parametric design, shows how it works, and focuses on its functional advantages and practical applications.
