Learn how parametric design can pave the way to carbon-neutral buildings with Sandeep Ahuja, Founder and CEO of URBAN-X Cohort 06 company, Cove.Tool. Ahuja will demonstrate and share her results on how cutting-edge, user-friendly software integrates performance into design thinking.

Building operations contribute to 40% of U.S. carbon emissions and there is often a disconnect between climate change and action in architecture practices. Most other economic sectors have rapidly adopted data-driven tools and processes to achieve sustainability targets but architects have been slow to embrace technology to make better decisions. With the consultant or firm specialist model being used by most firms, only 55% of projects are modeled for energy efficiency.

Parametric design is a process based on algorithmic thinking that enables the expression of parameters and rules that, together, define, encode and clarify the relationship between design intent and design response.
