HEYDAR ALIYEV CENTER
CASE STUDY I:
PARAMETRIC ARCHITECTURE
Blakely Kennedy

Joanne Lim

No actual definition to define meaning
Parameter?
General Use of the word PARAMETRIC
Parametric statistics
, a branch of statistics that assumes that the data has come from a type of probability distribution
Parametric derivative
, a derivative in calculus an independent and a dependent variables depend on an independent third variable
Parametric model
, a family of distributions that
can be described using a finite number of parameters
Parametric oscillator
, a harmonic oscillator
whose parameters oscillate in time
Parametric family
, a family of objects whose
definitions depend on a set of parameters
True Meaning in Architectural Lingo
A design of a building that is defined by its parameters

It's an artistic architectural style which values form over functional for visual satisfaction.

Its an animated geometrical entity unlike rigid geometrical figures.

Creating a building on certain parameters
Simulate lighting
Simulate temperature
Simulate energy usage
Simulate water usage
TIMELINE
THE HISTORY OF PARAMETRICISM
1839

1960
1940
1837
1821
1839
Samuel Earnshaw
Hyperbole Parametric. Surfaces deformed by lines of forces (1839, 102)

Antoni Gaudí
Colonia Guell Chapel
Hanging chain model(1675, 31)

1940
Luigi Moretti
Coined “Parametric Architecture” (Moretti, 1971)
Stadium N (Bucci and Mulazzani 2000, 114)

1960
Rise of the computer age
Ex. Itek’s Electronic Drafting Machine (Weisberg 2008)

1821
Sir John Leslie
Proved self-similarity of catenary curves using parametric circles

1837
James Dana
Wrote a paper titled on “On the drawing of figures of crystals (Dana 1837, 43)

Concept and Design Principles
Parametric modeling is the integration of programming techniques into the design process.
Concept development in parametric design is done on some simple rules, which are as follow:
Imagining fluidity and shapes in a form, which may create patterns and spaces. It’s a fusion of shapes, nature and human body.
1
2
Finding the possibility of space and having the freedom to play.
3
Differentiating and transforming geometry and inventing it in different forms.
4
Freedom to work around the techniques in computer graphics to observe a geometric and constructive sense and finding spaces.
5
Handling curve-shape forms using relatively complex geometrically procedures.
6
Study the sensitivity of the shapes and fluids

ZAHA
HADID
THE PIONEER OF PARAMETRIC DESIGN
She creates designs out of fluids and geometric shapes with so much ease and elegance
This project is the ultimate example of fluids being transformed in a perfect interconnected building
UNDULATIONS
BIFURCATION
FOLDS
INFLECTIONS
Each wave-like sections houses a different function and has its own identity and meaning but when put together, they create a continuous undulating surface, molded by the various parts of the building.
MODELING
PARAMETRIC
Manipulation of solid models with specific parameter valuations & constraints.

2 types namely
;
-
Propagation based
- compute from known to unknowns with a model.
-
Constraint based
Propagation-based modelling system:
The spreadsheet acts as parametric model
and the cell is one the users form relationships describing data flow from one cell to another.
Constraint-based modeling system:
Specifies entities within a model that must be maintained.
Classification of constraints
- Equational constraints ie:
dimensional parameters
- Geometrical constraints
eg; distance , angles.

- Semantic constraints
eg. Shape conditions

- Topological constraints
eg; connectivity

CASE STUDY II:
The design of the stadium envelope is based on a modular system of sculptural steel trusses which provide
shade and house the arena’s technical systems
NBBJ used computational design tools during schematic design and design development.

Rhinoceros 3D with the Grasshopper plug-in were instrumental tools for the design and documentation
The algorithm for defining the geometry of the exterior shell.

FUTURE OF PARAMETRICISM
AND GLOBALISATION
Patrick Schumacher
: ‘Parametricism the
only movement for the digital age’
Is Parametricism the

defining architectural style
of the digital age, or just one of many design
movements
?
"Parametricism is a fundamental rethinking of the primary constituting elements of architecture"
"You can also use digital tools in traditional architecture. But Parametricism is the only clear direction which can fully utilise the new opportunities of computational tools whereas other movements such as Minimalism, Neo-Classicism and High-Tech Modernism do not."
There is a global convergence in recent avant-garde architecture that justifies the enunciation of a new style: Parametricism
The style is rooted in digital animation techniques based on advanced parametric design systems and scripting techniques
Parametricism is the great new style after modernism

Negative principles (taboos)
Avoid rigid forms
Avoid simple repetition
Avoid collage of isolated, unrelated elements
Avoid rigid functional stereotypes
Avoid segregative functional zoning

Positive principles (dogmas)
All forms must be soft
All systems must be differentiated and interdependent
All functions are parametric activity scenarios
All activities communicate with each other
