summary This paper discusses a methodology for generating architectural form parametrically from structural logics such that an architectural vocabulary can be generated for use in design. It intends to further the discussion of how parametrics can play a role in architectural design. Parametric applications are facilitating the use of engineering design feedback into the architectural process, allowing architects to ‘tune’ their designs. In this case, structural form is discussed. The nature of parametrics makes the use of structural principles relatively simple because they are already in the numeric form of equations. As well, parametrics make the generation of alternatives easy because of the iterative nature of the tool. As such, including the basis of structural principles in the logic of the parametrics allows the design to function performatively in both an architectural and a structural sense.
