Shapes of Parametric Architecture

Voronoi-Morphologies-by-MATSYS-Design

Parametricism as an epochal phenomenon in the history of architecture has defined many rules for the current designers and for the future practitioners to follow. One of the strongest aspect that is prominent from this style is ‘geometry’. Arguably, there is nothing new about geometry and aesthetics forming the most prominent aspect of any style or era. The language of any style in the long history of architecture is visually defined by the geometry or the shape, beyond the principles that define the core of the style. In the distinguishable style of parametric architecture (or parametricism, as defined as a distinct style, by Patrik Schumacher), geometry has played and is continuing to play an integral role. And with this fairly young style, there are many strings of myths and false notions associated. There is an abuse of geometries that mimic natural forms and patterns, and are articulated as architectural form in an irrational manner. Geometries defined by hexa-grids, voronoi patterns, unnecessary double curved forms, and irrationally triangulated shapes are some of the many symbolic geometries that continue to emerge in architectural designs today.
