How we started
Parametricos started with the belief that architecture should be more accessible, efficient and functional. All architects can make better and faster decisions with the right data and tools. In 2018, a three-person team started Parametricos . We are now expanding our mission to the world not only to visualise buildings on maps but to empower decision-making to improve the built environment as we know it.
Data that make our world better should be available to the public and be constantly updated. We work with open-source communities and code, like Mapbox and IfcOpenShell and other third-parties data hubs, to synchronise meaningful data to one centralised platform for the architect.
Architecture is a wireframe that offers to the world a way to design, execute and adapt to an ever-changing community. Each decision, every line drafted by an architect, a bridge that was constructed by an engineer is to sustain and empower a better future.
Parametricos is building a virtual bridge between functionality and creativity with our online platform. We do that by enabling an instantaneous online workflow with a data-driven dashboard for the architect to make better and faster design decisions.
In essence along with our community, we want to optimise and organise the built environment by making architectural design more effective and accessible.
Our transparency empowers what we do. Our values reward
We are building a community. We first understand what are the pain points that our community is facing and we then strive to build solutions around the problem until it's eliminated. We then launch the solution to our community to build upon it and improve it together.
There is no bias. Our products and solutions are inclusive and accessible to everyone. There is no bias to who uses the product; if the user is doing so with good intentions for himself and the rest of the world.
Debate, Debate, then work. There is no one-man brainstorming-decision-making in Parametricos. All ideas are debatable they get feedback or stripped down but never thrown out the window. We then work together to make it happen.
'Be water my friend'. Commit to the work you are doing and adapt to the changing circumstances that might occur even when you are in the middle of a finalised solution. Be tough, be change, be parametricos.
RnDFV aka Research and Development Fridays Voice. Every Friday at 13:00 we stop; research and develop crazy ideas. Every employee at Parametricos has a voice to share ideas that can change the world.
Get ready, fire, aim. Spend less time thinking and more time expressing, sharing, sourcing opinions and increasing speed and efficiency.
Objectives. We align our goals as a team and we work based on weekly tasks with yearly objectives. Individuality is for martial arts. Collective intellect is for parametricos.
Designated Survivor. Ideas are worth nothing, execution is everything. We prioritise ideas and work on the ones that improve our world for our community, customers and employees.
Fail fast, fail together. Don't fail alone, don't hide a failure. Identify the problem, bring it to the team and solve it together.
'Wax on, wax off'. Mastery in parametricos is a long-term journey and a truly enlightened mind is meditating all of the time. There is no distinction between working, studying and learning. Task focused hard work dismissed as a waste of time early on, and appreciated later.
Transparency. Be honest, direct and polite. We strive for integrity, respect and encouragement within our team-work environment and towards our customers.
Be the culture. Be the perfect example of the culture you want to see in the office. A place where you have fun while working and learning.
