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 a UK Registered Architect currently based in Sydney, Australia. He is the founder of Parametric Monkey, a research and learning website dedicated to accelerating the computational literacy within architectural design.
Paul holds a Masters of Architecture and Urbanism from the Architectural Association’s Design Research Laboratory (AADRL) and has also studied at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), and l’école d’architecture de Paris Val-de-Seine (EAPVS). He has previously taught Master students at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and the University of Hong Kong (HKU), and undergraduate students at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), QUT and the AA.
He has worked extensively in Australia, The Netherlands, the UK and Hong Kong. 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.
