The parametric design techniques are developed over the past 15 years. And a new style called parametricism is born, which is the style rooted in digital animation techniques. The parametricism is based on the advanced parametric design systems and scripting method (Schumacher, 2009). This study is the research of defining the city of Istanbul and the skyscraper together in the sense of the parametricism. The result is expected to be a self-sufficient urban living proposal by using generative and parametric tools and scripting techniques. The other purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between the skyscraper and the natural world, and the urban living.
