Abstract: Parametricism introduced to the field of architecture rule-based design strategies, where varying inputs are computed to determine various geometric outputs.  These geometries are manufactured through digital fabrication techniques in order to achieve optimal performance and functionality.  Resulting in highly accurate forms that embody a sense of idealized precision, they disregard their material evolution over time and how they are affected by the variables that exist in flux within the physical world.

This thesis argues that the varying conditions of time, temperature, humidity, and human activity should be applied as physical parametric inputs to result in planned, yet indeterminate formal qualities.  These qualities become intrinsic to a specific moment and its conditions rather than seeking a form from the idealized past.  By using materials which respond to the physical conditions of the environment, ParaMATR explores a humanized post-parametric ideology where form follows material behavior.  The qualitative and temporal aspects that the parametric project rejects, are embraced by this ideology to be remapped as real time inputs.
