Article: VisualARQ to Parametricos

Parametricos is collaborating with VisualARQ.

April 2020: At Parametricos we love collaborating with great people that do their best to improve our design workflow. Francesc Salla and his team for VisualARQ at Asuni is one I know since I was working on my master thesis when I contacted them for some parametric questions. When we started Parametricos, VisualARQ were the first that I wanted to work with, since I believe it's the human aspect behind the product that make the whole experience better.

Releasing the Studio

September 2019:  The Studio exemplifies the importance of visualising a project in the early design stages with the surrounding environment. Only then one can be part of the transforming era for our cities. It is estimated that 200'000 people move in urban areas everyday. With that, they building industry is required to catch up with the demand. Nonetheless, in the fastness of our growing cities, many forget that this need lies not only with housing but with the quality of life that will be offered.

September 2018: At an early stage Parametricos team developed and tested our MVP, with an event we hosted in our premisses in Cyprus, where the attendees had the opportunity to test Parametricos platform for the first time. Parametricos team had the chance to validated our concept with more than 80 people testing our platform with the features at that point to include Digital Maps, Co-Design, Interior Design, Virtual Reality etc. Our team also had the chance to further discuss and earn feedback from potential customers about their pain points and how Parametricos can eliminate them and improve their workflow.


Incorporation & First Investment

April 2018: Marios and Anninos decided to move from theory to practice and back on April 2018 decided to incorporate Parametricos in Cyprus, where they started working intensively and operating towards bringing Parametricos idea into life. By the same period, they managed to secure an initial investment, which help them to fill the software developer role to Parametricos team.
The name Parametricos has a double meaning, it derives from Parametric Design where the architect and his client set parameters to drive the architectural design. The second meaning is associated with Operating Systems and thus the ending of the name. Parametric Operating Systems - Parametric[OS].


Idea Bootstrap

February 2018: Parametricos idea borne by the mid-2017 and during Marios' master thesis at the Politecnico di Milano. His thesis has theories not only from the architectural design and collaboration in the design process, but also includes aspects from economics and global awareness in architectural design and social theories elements. Discussing his theory and work with Anninos, they realised that their share a common perception and values of how the architectural industry can improve its workflow, and this is where their collaboration started. They set an official start date on February 2018 where they started bootstrapping the idea into actions.
