Parametricism by Patrik Schumacher and Rosey Chan | Virtual Design Festival | Dezeen

Composer and pianist Rosey Chan teamed up with architect Patrik Schumacher of Zaha Hadid Architects to create this short movie that sets parametric architectural imagery to music.

Dezeen has published the movie as part of the VDF x Rosey Chan collaboration celebrating Chan’s work and culminating in a live interview and exclusive performance.

Called Parametricism, the four-minute film features computer sequences from Zaha Hadid Architects showing how parametric software is used to generate architectural forms.

“This is the attempt to condense 15 years of collective design research into a paradigmatic sequence of animations, something I had been doing in my recent lectures on parametricism,” Schumacher told Wallpaper magazine at the time.

The video starts with abstract patterns, while later sequences show how parametrically generated forms can be scaled up to inform buildings or even entire urban districts.
