Within a digital environment, where variancy is the norm, open-ended and proliferating
generative strategies are employed, sampling and editing displacing design
determinism as the essential aptitude of the architect. Parametric modelling,
which models variables within a dynamic system, demands that the architect
articulate the essential parameters and their implication within a generative
environment: how does one establish the rules by which an architecture might
be produced rather than a singular determination of form? The paramorph emerges
as the principled opponent to accidental methodologies of form-generation.
