On November 14 & 15, PennDesign hosted "The New Normal: Experiments in Contemporary Generative Design," investigating how the role of experimentation can continue to contribute to architecture education, design research and practice, theory, and fabrication. Organized by by the Post-Professional Design (PPD) Program in the Department of Architecture under the direction of Winka Dubbeldam, Professor and Chair, the symposium assessed the current state of technology and how researchers, practitioners, and theoreticians incorporate rigorous modes of speculation into their work. In particular, we focused on how digital tools have allowed for new conceptions of the practice of architecture.
