A Praxis on Parametric Design; An Exploration of CityEngine as a Tool in the Development of Urban Design Scenarios
B. Trevor B., Grafton
Landscape Architects should not create final products, but rather frameworks through which natural existing phenomenon can coexist, evolve and adapt; while bringing together an evolving final existence. The world is not static; the image which we design on paper will never exist exactly the way in which we imagined and there are certain aspects, which we cannot account for or control in the natural world. Given this belief, this practicum is not intended as a final design; but rather constructed as praxis; an exploration of a parametric modeling software and its use as an integral part of the natural design thinking process; a simulation tool rather than a representational conclusion.
