Parametric and computational design play a major role in contemporary architecture and engineering. Designers need no longer conform to predetermined shapes and sections, but are given freedom to explore new geometries and structural forms. An example of how an organic process can be employed to finding the solution to a design problem is presented. Topology optimization is studied to suggest different alternatives for the creation of an open and functional internal tower structure in an educational building.
