The principles of parametric modeling and design based on the example of a buildings is studied, the architectural image of whiches are a set of spiral circular surface with circles of variable radius defined by coordinates through functions of the corresponding surfaces in the SAPPHIRE software. Alternative methods for specifying surfaces in the SAPPHIRE PC with subsequent export to the LIRA PC for engineering calculations of the frame of the building for various combinations of loads by the finite element method are presented. The object of the study is a 130-meter-high building with a hardness core in the form of a cylindrical shell of revolution. One of the most universal ways to create a surface is to specify it through a formula, because you can easily change the shape and appearance of the surface without manually editing the geometry of the model in the drawing. The development of the parametric architecture calls for the creation of new approaches to the calculation of unique buildings and structures, the improvement of software complexes that implement the finite element method, and the appearance of new varieties of finite elements with curvilinear boundaries.

Now elements of natural structures of the world surrounding us form a basis for loan by their architects and designers in their professional activity. It is caused not only by esthetic appeal of natural objects, but also big functionality of their form providing high degree of durability, reliability, adaptation to the changing external conditions, comforts of their use as inhabited and production rooms. In this work the analysis of the VAT of an oviform envelope under the influence of sole weight and intrinsic pressure is provided.
