This paper presents a comprehensive literature review and analysis of parametric and generative mechanisms for infrastructure projects. The selection criteria identified 41 related studies, with five major research domains associated with parametric modeling: “Building information modeling,” “parametric modeling,” “Infrastructure,” “Multi-scale modeling,” and “generative engineering.” This review analyzes the state of research on parametric modeling in infrastructures, developing operational frameworks, and identifying generative mechanisms for various types of infrastructure, including tunnels, roads, and bridges. The outcomes of this study will aid researchers and practitioners in gaining a clear understanding of the current status of the topic, adopting parametric and generative mechanisms for different types of infrastructure projects, and identifying future research directions.
