Lecture by Masoud Akbarzadeh
6:30 – 8:00pm

The Center for Architecture and Design and the University of Pennsylvania Stuart Weitzman School of Design stage an exhibition that brings together some of ongoing design research projects at the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory (PSL).

PSL, an interdisciplinary research center led by the Weitzman’s School’s Assistant Professor of Architecture Masoud Akbarzadeh, works at the intersection of architecture, structural engineering, computer science, mathematics, and material science to bridge the gap between engineering and design. PSL is part of the Advanced Research and Innovation Lab in the Department of Architecture. 

Akbarzadeh will introduce the exhibition, as well as highlight recent research from the Polyhedral Structures Laboratory. His lecture will be followed by a reception. This event is free and open to the public.
