“Forget Parametricism” Published in Neil Leach/Yuan’s “Computational Design” Book.

I’m excited to announce that Neil Leach and Philip Yuan’s book “Computational Design” is for sale on Amazon as of April 2.  If you haven’t already picked up a copy, I suggest you get one.  It has projects and manifestos from an array of great contemporary designers and architects.  My paper, “Forget Parametricism,” submitted years ago for a different conference, has been retroactively published in light of its exceptional insights and salience.

You can find the publication here:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/7560873332/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I’m hoping that my rebuttal to so-called Parametricism will help redirect this misappropriation and revisionist take on contemporary architecture.  Parametricism cannot be the catch-all for any cool-looking form or style currently being designed.  Almost all of the forms and spaces being designed nowadays have strict underlying rules and configurations that do not adhere to the superficial stylistic tenets of this last dying vestige of post-modernism.

Anyway, more about that in the article, so buy a bunch.
