Parametric Model

Computer simulation of evolutionary processes is already well established technique for the study of environmental, biological and economic dynamics. Use of algorithms for generation of virtual entities that will develop its functional and formal properties within the non-linear process of adaptation of complex system is a foundation for new point of view in understanding architecture and urban environment. This paper describes parametric approach in architectural design through elaboration of shift in paradigms in architecture that has brought to the idea of use of parametric modeling with emphasis on two different groups of parametric software and presents the possibilities of generative algorithms in modeling architectural form and development of cities and urban design.
