Parametric architecture is based on algorithmic thinking. The dimensions of design are considered and then converted into parameters i.e. made variables which turns up a plethora of design options. This design is not only geometrically pleasing but it also helps to solve visual, perceptive, material, and structural issues. Parametric Design is the architecture of the 21st century and has become a way of encoding knowledge and intent into the design which makes it more reliable, adaptable, and cheaper. It constantly enables architects to push their boundaries of what they can do with contemporary technology.
