MoMA vertical Neighborhood

this is a great example of how parametric tools can change the way we think about and do Architecture:

“The utilization of an associative approach not only provides for the generation of complex geometry but allows for the integration of external data; project progress, material properties, manufacturing constraints, and economic forecasting, become essential drivers of design. The use of Parametric Software promotes flexibility throughout the architectural process, permitting design decisions to be consistently applied at each phase.  Emphasis is placed back on design and performance.”

and this kind of planning can also (if it isn’t already) be associated with genetic algorithms to optimise the building’s design, improving it’s “fitness”.
