Due to the complex nature of urban space and the multitude of interests vested in it, urban design can be described as a complex system. Various disciplines are involved in the analysis and development of urban space. In this respect, collaboration is key in creating socially and physically sustainable urban design. This paper, using a student workshop as a point of departure, discusses the potentials of parametric design as a methodological approach in collaborative urban design between disciplines and with non-professionals.
