Walter Netsch and his Field Theory “a system based on Greek geometry that relied heavily on recursive calculation”, may be consider under “Parametricism”?

Walter Netsch developed manual drafts of buildings that prefigured the type of complex designs that now populate the contemporary architectural landscape. For instance, Netsch’s design for the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel contained 17 spires made up of 100 tetrahedrons that were painstakingly drawn out and reworked by hand.
