Raising the i-Factor: Bridging Parametric Shape and Parametric Design
Date of Original Version
Abstract or Description
Using the artifice of the i-device as an analogue, this paper examines issues in making design software more accessible through projects on computer-aided sustainable design, panelization for design and fabrication, and parametric shape grammar interpretation. In each case accessibility is improved by transitioning design from a representational concern to one that is more process oriented through the use of localized semantics.
