MetricMonkey

MetricMonkey enables architects, urban designers and property developers to evaluate the feasibility of designs in real-time via an interactive dashboard. MetricMonkey focuses on augmenting, rather than replacing human capabilities, so that the designer is always in control of the design.

Features

Easy-to-use

Easy-to-use graphical user interface which doesn't require Grasshopper experience.

Fast

Real-time feedback on key metrics and environment analysis ensuring a fluid design iteration process.

Flexible

Modular development allows additional modules to be added and modified effortlessly.

Optional modules

ADG compliance

This module provides preliminary compliance checking for some of the NSW's Apartment Design Guide (ADG) requirements. While NSW specific, the modules are versatile enough to be used as a general design metric.

Parking

Parking requirements vary depending on the local regulations. Contact us to customise this module to suit your needs.

Generative Design

Generative design is an iterative design process that explores numerous permutations of a solution to quickly generate design alternatives. This module will be coming soon. Contact us to customise this module to suit your needs.

MetricMonkey update

Back in May last year we released a preview of MetricMonkey, our feasibility analysis software, which enables architects, urban designers and property developers to evaluate designs in real-time via an interactive dashboard. Since then, we’ve been busy developing MetricMonkey to incorporate much of the initial user feedback we received. Here is a preview of some of the new features we’ve been working on. Mixed-use functionality We don’t live in the 1960s anymore and no longer is it best practice to have single-use zoning. That’s why we’ve incorporated mixed-use functionality. Switching from one… Read More

Parametric Monkey announces preview of new feasibility software

I am pleased to announce the preview of MetricMonkey, Parametric Monkey’s feasibility software. The software enables architects, urban designers and property developers to evaluate designs in real-time via an interactive dashboard. MetricMonkey focuses on augmenting, rather than replacing human capabilities, so that the designer is always in control of the design. Democratising knowledge Over the past decade or so, designers have become increasingly aware of the enormous value that computational design offers. Yet despite its advantages, many designers have struggled to embed computational design into their design processes. Our experience suggests that… Read More
