Polina Timchenko in her thesis “Audio to Architecture: House Music as a Form Generator” is going to explore the idea that every house music component can be translated into geometry with the use of parametric design techniques.

Strategies for Parametric Design

Strategies for Parametric Design

This thesis by Roland Hudson is aimed at establishing a detailed understanding of the tasks related to parametric design and to develop a set of considerations that should be made when undertaking tasks related to this field. The position of the parametric designer in architectural practice presents new opportunities in the design process this thesis also aims to capture these.
