Abstract

Generative tools contribute new possibilities to traditional design, yet formal representation of digital procedures can be counterintuitive to some makers. We envision the use of catalogues in parametric design, replacing abstract design procedures with a given set of visual options to select from and react to. We review the research challenges in realizing our catalog vision. We contribute an embryonic catalog generated from a formal list of parameters, demonstrated on a parametric mushroom. We also present a simple user study where students engaged in a design task relying on a catalog of prototypes generated by parametric design.
