ABSTRACT

The paper deals with the green parametric architecture as a new approach to architectural and urban design. In the twenty-first century the digital design tools, which are interfaced with the production of computer technology, have opened the new opportunities that not only are shaping the architectural objects, but also interferencing in the buildings’ structures. The first part of the paper defines the main features of the "green" architecture. Selected samples show a diverse approach to designing the architecture, and what combines them is the use of the digital tools especially the topological (morphogen-process or ESO) and analytical ones in the shaping and constructing the parametric forms. The second part presents, how correlating digital morphogenesis and ecology, architects can develop a new framework for architectural design. An account of two morpho-ecological design strategies is presented. This approach is rooted within a biological paradigm, and thus concerned with issues of higher-level functionality and performance capacity of buildings described as a "green". the possibility to develop an architectural approach that is integrates ecological, topological and structural performances. This integral approach suggests that "morpho- ecological" architectural design constitutes a new kind of friendly buildings based on the modulation of microenvironmental conditions within an emergent macro- environmental system. The research suggests that alternative ideas of efficiency and sustainability of the built environment can be explored through adaptiogenesis.
