summary The rise of design computation as a paradigm in design process has certainly brought increased attention to the mathematical basis of form giving in architectural design. Numerous types of generative systems ranging from shape grammars to parametric design have been developed in the past, where computers are used as a tool to generate building form automatically. This paper focuses on the role of number sequences and mathematical methods of controlling and introducing systematic change (modulation) to generative systems. In a graduate level class, VBA programming through a CAD system was used to develop software that can parametrically generate 2-d and 3-d forms. As a conclusion, the paper argues that forms generated as such are not monotonous, and that being particularly attentive to the mathematical basis of variation and change in parametric generators allows one to explore change in a more systematic fashion.
