title Parametric Possibilities: Designing with Parametric Modelling

summary We describe several projects in our ongoing research and teaching activities in the field of parametric design. The work is based on the premise that using parametric modelling and customized mass production for designing, planning and realisation, the creation of a spatially rich and varied architecture which is specific for individual programs, users and contexts is being made possible. We demonstrate this design approach by explaining three different design methodologies of various projects. The specifics and the experience of the use of various CAD software tools will be described: scriptable CAD programs like VectorWorks and CAD software with integrated parametric modelling like Unigraphics.
