ABSTRACT: The development of the digital discourse in the field of architecture has been a principale concern at the beginning of the 21st century. Attempts at developing methodologies for the utilization of digital tools in the design process have been present for decades. In the past decade that interest has been augmentted by a stance that aims to emphasize the use of generative tools that can facilitate an iteractive systems approach to design. This article illustrates how a parametric modeling process htas been applied in the design and dimensioning of brise soleil doubble facade systems.
