Parametric denotes a process in which equations derived from parameters, variables, and rules coordinate to produce a system for generating solutions. Rather than being a problem-to-answer formula, a parametric equation uses *computational way-finding *to derive a family of outcomes. Parametric computing is also used to define, encode, and clarify the relationship between solutions so that when it comes to the field of architecture the design objective is a thoughtful, well-informed, multi-objective design response.
