Parametric Design

Our parametric modelling team leverages the processing power of the computer to make sense of complex information to use as design drivers and inform decision making across scales and disciplines in the pursuit of designing better cities.

We excel at bringing together many perspectives simultaneously to create exceptional places or exper-iences at the intersection of mobility, healthcare, learning and living. We leverage the power of computation and data to give every stakeholder a voice in the design process. From developer feasibility, to environmental analysis, to client engagement, we are able to tailor our computational design logic to meet the needs of the project.

Pandemic Resilience Toolkit

We are leveraging parametric design for urban pandemic resilience in a number of areas, including:

  • Safe return to office
  • Safe return to school
  • Entertainment venue capacity planning and operations
  • Hospital operational optimization
  • Regional healthcare facility planning
  • Students and essential workers allocation

Evidence-based design

Parametric modelling is a customizable algorithmic process enabling the architect or planner to efficiently and effectively process complex information, using multiple parameters, for evidence-based decision making.

Applications include:

  • Building design and optimization
  • Transit route planning
  • Placemaking
  • Energy modelling
  • Land use master planning
  • Facilities operations and simulation
