There was been a rapid technology advancement in all fields after that 20th century thus architecture needs to use advance design forming technology to improve and detail out the aspects of design efficiently therefore Parametric Design is a set of parameters provided by the site converted into an algorithm which a computer software then create a responsive design that can be tweaked to the designer‟s requirement and Fluidity is a state of being unsettled or a form that is smooth and creates a sense of motion. Patrik Schumacher, who at the time was a partner at Zaha Hadid Architects, coined the term „parametricism‟. Parametric design has particularly rebelled against long-established guidelines. Due to the idea that “form follows function”, modern architecture is more of a science than an art form, which creates a monotonous skyline with straight lines and box shapes. Parametricism, on the other hand, focuses on free-form architectural concepts. Sweeping lines, curves, and irregular shapes give each building character. Such designs might appear futuristic or otherworldly. In the study, I aimed to understand and apply parametric as a design tool, as well as learn about parametric design thinking Computer aided Geometric design, and methods for applying parametric in different fields of design.
