The digital and technological revolution of the late twentieth century brought about far-reaching changes to the various design disciplines, and to architecture in particular. Today, the old architectural paradigms can no longer express themselves and deal with the new pace of life and its power. Digital architecture is a style in which computer-based processes drive and guide the planning and design process. Today, the new planning environments enable new and challenging thinking in every aspect of traditional architecture, ranging from sketches and mappings through materiality and form search, to construction and construction methods on site. These are the new environments in which we are required to plan today, and this is the basis of parametric thinking. In the 21st century.The "parametric city" investigates the processes of urbanization in a global and local context. And examines sites that face broad structural and social changes. The field of research moves beyond the heritage of traditional urban planning, characterized by binary definitions between city and margins, city and suburb, etc. Instead, it is the parametric city that is examined as a changing complexity of artificial and natural social and economic systems. In the framework of the parametric unit, we will put the spotlight on the question of energy, the connection to nature and the city in which spatial dynamics are inseparable from the effects of climate change, landscape and infrastructure, ecology of ecosystems, the disruption of residential systems, the challenges of current work patterns and the changing transformations of urban mobility.The studio's products will range from urban to neighborhood and private. And will deal with the complexity of the growing spatial, dynamic, information-flow, technology, and ever-changing social / economic relationships in real time. By producing information in parametric systems, we can begin to produce reflexive, flexible, complex, variable and dynamic systems that can create new living environments relevant to the 21st century.An important emphasis will be placed in the unit and in the course that supports the professionalization and improvement of the student's toolbox. The participants will learn and practice tools such as parametric software, digital production and design, robotics, modeling software, smart geometries, virtual reality, simulation software, mapping and climate, animation software and advanced rendering software. So that a significant body of knowledge will be created among the participants, for a critical, historical and practical understanding of the parametric planning world.
