  • Pressing Matters III | PennDesign
    The PPD MArch2 semester collaborated last year with Peter Winston Ferretto Architect Assistant Professor at Seoul National University Department of Architecture which was made possible by the generous support of Mr Jeong of the Heerim Company Seoul Korea an Alumnus of PennDesign The subject of the PPD studio a Surrealist Museum in Seoul was to be located in controversial and interesting sites in Seoul The outcomes will be seen soon in the annual PPD publication More news on the PPD I am excited to be able to announce the start of a newly formulated Post Professional Program which will now include a third semester This added semester not only allows for a completely reconfigured first semester with a dedicated studio and specific seminars but also provides a much more thorough involvement with the 3 rd year of the MArch program With Ali Rahim as its new Director the PPD is ready to start a new chapter Our MArch program continues to grow as do the wide range of dual degree programs offered through PennDesign As you will see in these pages students have had the opportunity to work with world renowned architects and the quality of the student work is as strong as ever We have also added even more 3 D printers in studio completely re calibrated our Visual Studies program our Professional Practice curriculum and our History and Theory lectures and seminars to better reflect changing professional and disciplinary dynamics This ongoing interest in the possibilities of contemporary design is also reflected in our public lecture series and symposia It is an exciting time to be at Penn Growth in our student body has also led to an influx of new faculty and a search for a tenure track position I am happy to announce that Andrew Saunders

  • Architecture and Urbanism | PennDesign
    and Urbanism Downtown Puebla Mexico Critic Enrique Norten The Paseo Bravo is a public park situated on the west side of the historic center of Puebla right on the edge of World Heritage protection zone defined by UNESCO and was originally a symbol of modernity in the 19th century For many years was a urban border to Cholula The area concentrates diverse uses and identities surrounded by buildings and monuments of great historical value with a long history as are the Church of Guadalupe the Church of San Javier the Music Conservatory the Puebla Cultural Center the Historical Archive Building the Farmers Market the National Rail Museum and many others Despite their adjacencies these urban components have little interaction and relation to each other and the Paseo Bravo This studio focused on the architecture and urbanism of Puebla s colonial and pre modern center specifically the Paseo Bravo area Starting from the recognition that this area is essential to Puebla s growth into the 21st century the studio developed strategies to re invent activate and strengthen some of its public spaces and propose and design of new cultural and educational building s that could provide new opportunities for the future

  • City Specific Interiors: | PennDesign
    the time when world cities proliferate across the globe with whirlwind speed how can architecture make the spatial experience of each to remain specific How can each city s culture and geography be felt in its interior environments Focus of this semester in the London studio aimed at articulating how light literally colors our experience of space by conditioning the physical space and our material perception of it Lived experience finds coordinates in spatial representation creating sensations of definition and dispersal intimacy or publicity density or transparency interiority and exposure In producing sensation of comfort coziness warmth cool shade energy or calm it can expand or contract scale emplace or displace sites enclose frame or engender flows With studio resident in London for the Fall semester we used the opportunity to have direct experience of this metropolis through analysis of physical spaces in relation to specific environments of light in its historic and contemporary spaces In preparatory research for the design project the students analyzed specific urban spaces in public pavilions art installations markets churches train stations as well as a range of local and global architectural precedents in relation to the formations of light in their material space Support

  • Artificial Matters | PennDesign
    Elena Manferdini LITERAL vs SYNTHETIC Materiality Traditionally architects have been taught that materials have a true nature and that their use should align with the honest application of that nature Lately however the architecture world has witnessed a renaissance in material consciousness This new awareness recognizes the value of a material s intrinsic characteristics but further explores the possibility that altering exaggerating or reconfiguring inherent properties provokes an entirely novel vocabulary of material sensations The resulting artificial materials can be described as synthetic because they are the result of layering various qualities that are not necessarily innate to the physical properties of a specific matter but instead are the compounded product of combining multiple stratifications of texture geometry coloration and tooling Currently the haptic and visual aspects of materials clearly dominate the discussion moving away from any prescriptive approach or predetermined outcome releasing any moral judgment about the right way to use materials Alternatively materiality had a fundamentally different development in the historic spectrum of sculpture and painting Artists unlike architects have traditionally used materials as representational devices for other effects or realities Only in a few exceptional cases have materials been used in art because of their true nature or performance characteristics Often the art field displays a tendency to isolate a few abstract materials that are then chiseled or brushed into representing many other real materials The virtuous mastery of the artist was the ingredient that would be able to make an other thing exactly as another thing is seen to be Most of the artistic investigation in fact has revolved on the optics discussing the ways in which objects are visually perceived and the intellectual associations they can instigate in the viewer Support Work Like This Explore Cross Disciplinary Connections xLAB Experience Design Technology Lab Research Detail
