You can read the Article online, Contract Magazine.  I also have the issue at my desk if anyone would like to flip through.

There is also a neat project by One Plus Partnership that utilizes parametric design for the Hubei Xiangsheng & Insun Entertainment Company.

Our own local ZGF won an interiors award for the Randall Children’s Hospital as well.  No parametrics there, but a neat project.
