ParametricMonkey.com is an initiative to accelerate computational literacy within architectural design. Founded by Paul Wintour, the site has a plethora of tutorials, open-source code and research, enabling architects and designers to develop an in-depth understanding of digital design tools. With a focus on interoperability and nimbleness, Parametric Monkey lies at the intersection of parametric design and BIM.
Paul Wintour is the founder of Parametric Monkey and a computational design and BIM specialist based in Sydney. As a registered architect in NSW and the UK, Paul has a detailed understanding of the complexities within the construction industry. He has worked extensively in Australia, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and The Netherlands.
Paul holds a Masters of Architecture and Urbanism from the Architectural Association’s Design Research Laboratory and has also studied at the Queensland University of Technology and l’école d’architecture de Paris Val-de-Seine where he received a Bachelor of Architecture with Honours.
He has taught at the University of Technology Sydney, the University of New South Wales, the Queensland University of Technology, the University of Hong Kong, and the Architectural Association.
Currently, Paul is a Senior Associate at BVN where he provides BIM implementation and design technology services to project teams. In particular, Paul specialises in the interface between conceptual parametric modelling and project delivery. Paul is also the author of the BVN Dynamo package.
