A series of talks looking at style. In this sixth talk, Patrik Schumacher, principal of Zaha Hadid Architects, defends Parametricism.

Parametricism is a contemporary architectural style using programs, algorithms and computers in order to create more spatial complexity. But to its critics it is indulgent and narcissistic, a distraction from the social task of architecture. Here, Patrik Schumacher - the person who coined the term - champions the style.

Style: In Defence of... is a series of talks at the Soane Museum examining the content and context of style. Across six talks, in partnership with Machine Books and Future Cities Project, leading experts defend a style, confronting us with new ideas for contemplation and critique. Talks are followed by an audience discussion.
