Parametric Urbanismtaxonomy/feature.php

New ways of modeling the physical shape of cities allows us to shape-shift at the touch of a keystroke.  Can this ability to generate a multiplicity of possible future urbanities help make better cities?

Parametric approaches to urban design are based on creating responsive models of urban contexts that are programmed to change form according to how inputs are varied. Rather than the architect creating a final product, they instead create a space of possibilities that is activated according to how various flow variables - economic, environmental, or social, are tweaked. This form of architectural form making holds similarities to complex systems in terms of how entities are framed: less as objects in and of themselves, and more as responsive, adaptive agents.

What Happens When Algorithms Design a Concert Hall? The Stunning Elbphilharmonie

The most interesting thing about Herzog and De Meuron's newly opened concert hall, the Elbphilharmonie, isn't its wave-like facade, which rises above the city of Hamburg, Germany. It's not the gently curved elevator at the base of the lobby that deposits you into the belly of the Swiss architects' alien landscape.
