dc.description.abstractThis thesis addresses the need for flexible parametric design tools. It focuses on the implementation of a particular tool, Bentley Systems' Generative Components, by exploring features, strengths and weaknesses, and how features can be implemented in design. An exposition of Generative Components is introduced to bridge the gap between the potential and existing power of parametric tools. Through a case study of the Bahá'í Temple for South America this thesis explores the implementation of Generative Components. The exposition argues for the validity of parametric research, specifically its ability to streamline and enhance an architectural design process. <br /><br /> The topic of parametric design is further documented in a survey submitted to researchers and developers in the field of parametric research and design. The purpose of this documentation is to place the progression of parametric tools within the context of current development, initiating an open-ended discussion focusing on future research. <br /><br /> This thesis adds to the current development of parametric technology by making particular contributions to tools within the realm of parametric research. Primary contributions include array seeking scripts that search for and replace or duplicate objects, routines for nesting functions within scripts, ideological workflow development and conceptual training through practical application.en
