  • Text is software agnostic to ensure students across platforms can learn skills and fundamentals without being tied to one programme
  • Case studies, interviews and essays from leading international figures in the field highlight how parametric design works in real life situations, and give tips on using it as a design tool
  • Written assuming reader has no prior knowledge of parametric design, and covers the basics upwards


Codify: Parametric and Computational Design in Landscape Architecture provides a series of essays that explore what it means to use, modify and create computational tools in a contemporary design environment. Landscape architecture has a long history of innovation in the areas of computation and media, particularly in how the discipline represents, analyses, and constructs complex systems. This curated volume spans academic and professional projects to form a snapshot of digital practices that aim to show how computation is a tool that goes beyond methods of representation and media. The book is organized in four sections; syntax, perception, employ, and prospective. The essays are written by leading academics and professionals and the sections examine the role of computational tools in landscape architecture through case studies, historical accounts, theoretical arguments, and nascent propositions.
