Parametric (Pre)Tensions: Design at Warp Speed
Track: 3D Cities and Campuses
Authors: Michael Kavalar
For a project that entailed the design of a completely new city for 1.75M people, SOM was asked by the client to develop a detailed digital model that would enable the creation of a large physical model for real estate and marketing purposes. In this presentation we will share anecdotes of how our team of designers improvised a workflow that attempted to introduce parametric tools (CityEngine) into an absurdly accelerated design workflow and will share both its advantages and pitfalls.
