Paramateria is a training center for parametric design and advanced fabrication methods located in Berlin and Eberswalde, Germany.At Paramateria, we teach architects, designers, engineers, programmers and other specialists how to work with parametric tools. We are a collaborative initiative of Ligas, a Berlin-based carpentry company, and the Eberswalde University of Sustainable Development.
We believe in a sustainable future in which parametric design serves as a working method of industrial manufacturers to develop and mass-customize unique, yet profitable, products while minimizing their ecological footprint. Such products are designed to optimally meet the customer’s particular requirements and will therefore be used for many years to come. Our mission is to guide the process of turning passive consumers into empowered creators.
We seek to prepare course participants for their career goals by affording them an understanding of the wide range of available manufacturing options, and by enabling them to estimate the complexity and cost of various projects.
