2 thoughts on “Parametrics in Planning

  1. Planners tend to be a pragmatic bunch. There may well be a use for planametric software within the field of planning, but most of us would like to see some best practices on a demonstrable scale before we start conceiving of entire cities based on a theoretical “planametricism.” Some questions: How can this method help toward meeting triple-bottom line goals? Does it produce designs that non-initiated people like?

    That being said, it’s a good thing that there are a certain number of people in the avant garde willing and able to experiment with new ideas, and professionally rewarded for doing so. 9 out of 10 new -isms may fall flat, but we never know if one may eventually work. Seems like a worthwhile investment.
