Tools used in parametric design in landscape architecture

Keywords: parametric design, parametric modelling, digital parametric tools, design, landscape architect

In the era of digitization, parametric design creates new possibilities for its application in areas such as architecture
and design as well as landscape architecture. However, it requires tools that can not only facilitate
the design process, but also reduce its time consumption. The purpose of the article is to review the software
used for parametric design supporting the work of landscape architects. The selected, most popular programs
and plugins used by architects and designers, which are also indirectly used by landscape architects as well
as software dedicated directly to landscape architects, were evaluated. Most of the discussed software has
options for parametric design, while they only apply to selected elements. Due to the interdisciplinary character
of landscape architecture, there is currently no single multi-functional program giving the possibility of
comprehensive application of parametric design options to all aspects of a complex project. For this reason,
landscape architects are forced to combine functions themselves using several of programs. This is a significant
difficulty in carrying out the design process.
