Disputing calculations in architecture: Notes for a pragmatic reframing of parametricism and architecture


The discussion on parametricism in architecture needs to be reframed. The desire for a new technologically-driven march of progress has gained an amplified voice that conceals a much richer ecosystem of heterogeneous realities. With the intention of counterbalancing that hegemony , I propose to look at parametricism, calculation, and digital technologies as constituent components of daily life. By looking at pragmatic accounts of two cases of domestic urban enactments in which calculation, parametricism, and digital technologies are playing key constructive roles, we can gain opportunities to introduce alternative perspectives that reconnect the discussion with the empirical capital that daily life accumulates.
