By taking the tools of parametric design into the domain of urbanism, the power of the parametric paradigm can potentially be harnessed to build up urban fields with a new level of ordered complexity. The lecture will present a series of relevant projects and investigate our capacity to perceive, conceive and navigate the spatial complexity of a coherent urban field.
