    The New Normal investigated how the role of experimentation can continue to contribute to architecture education, design research and practice, theory, and fabrication. The focus of the symposium was to assess the current state of technology and how researchers, practitioners, and theoreticians incorporate rigorous modes of speculation into their work. Panel 1: "New Assemblages" featured: Moderator: Roland Snooks (PennDesign, Kokkugia) Panelists: Manuel De Landa (PennDesign) Mark Goulthorpe (deCOi Architects, Hyposurface, Zero+, MIT) Simon Kim (PennDesign, IK Studio) Brandon Kruysman (Kruysman-Proto, Bot&Dolly, SCI-Arc) Francois Roche (New-Territories Architects) For details, please visit www.design.upenn.edu/calendar/new-normal-experiments-contemporary-generative-design.

        Master of Architecture Candidate Michael Kipfer produced a video documenting how new digital tools are allowing PennDesign students to experiment and investigate the ways in which we conceptualize, design, and fabricate architecture. Narrated by fellow students Kelly Berger and Kordae Henry, the video coincides with a larger discussion around contemporary generative design at The New Normal, a symposium organized by the Post-Professional Design (PPD) Program in Architecture under the direction of Winka Dubbeldam, Professor and Chair.

        • UmBauhaus: Updating Modernism by Matthias Hollwich and Rainer Weisbach

          Imagine a journey around the world, where you meet 28 interesting personalities from the fields of architecture, marketing, politics and industrial design, and discuss possible alternatives to the reconstruction of the Gropius Director's House. We have just returned from such a journey, and it resulted in a drastic transformation of our own perspectives and opinions. The search for answers on bringing Modernism up-to-date turned, of its own accord, into a process of updating our own opinions, forced a departure from ready-made modes of thought, and the sensitization to new connections between the Gropius House, Modernism, contemporary society and our task. We have learned that the Bauhaus was an activity without a linear goal, but with clearly formulated questions, and that we must pursue contemporary questions in precisely the same unconventional and experimental way. We have learned that, despite a gap of 75 years, many of the themes of the time have lost none of their relevance. We have also learned that the Bauhaus, through its exceptional fame, sometimes stands in its own way. The results are video interviews, a video edit, project concepts, processes, developments and a book, called UmBauhaus. The video and the book are a kind of brainstorming session on bringing Modernism up-to-date, an infusion of plurality, inspiration and entertainment in the otherwise very one-sided world of the cultural debate and reflection on Modernism. The book UmBauhaus provides no clear answers, but asks many questions derived from individual contributions or which developed autonomously from the structure and form of the book itself. We have deliberately taken a risk in mixing high culture with popular culture, theory with mundane practice. The book is like a rap through time - a mixture that is a sign of our times, and which describes a confrontation with reality. Can one, in this day and age, lead a debate on reconstruction without reflecting on the phenomenon of plastic surgery? If Mike and Matt want to look like Brad Pitt (see MTV's "I Want a Famous Face"), then this is not far removed from the desire to see the Gropius Director's House resurrected once again. We do not pass judgment on whether plastic surgery or reconstructions are reprehensible or if demolition - whether of the gable-roof house of the Director's House - would be even more reprehensible... We only offer references and encourage the reader to draw his or hear own conclusion. Take a journey with this book. Lose your read-made opinions and draw your own conclusions. This book is a call to experiment with our own illusions and the attempt, from one debate, one project and process, to generate new knowledge. "He, who is modern, wins!" - Otto Rehhagel.

            The Scale/Scope symposium and workshop, held March 2014 as part of PennDesign's Spring Lecture Series, set out to empower design students to engage their social agenda through combining a high-level symposium with student workshops. The goal was to create a new value proposition for design education - to make a public case for engaging in broad social agendas that deliver charged, meaningful projects with a wide and ambitious scope. Organized by students Josh Jordan, M.Arch ‘14, Nick McClintock, M.Arch ‘15, Anooshey Rahim, M.Arch/MLA ‘14, and Graham Prentice, MLA ‘13, the symposium closed with a conversation between John Peterson of Public Architecture and Winka Dubbeldam, Chair of Graduate Architecture at PennDesign and Principal of Archi-tectonics.

                  Working across scales from a New York skyscraper to a rural house, the Dutch-born architect Winka Dubbeldam has established herself as one of the most provocative figures in the field by seamlessly integrating function and form, technology and comfort, city and home. Folded glass facades, intelligent building cores, and interactive environments highlight the work of her progressive, process-based studio/laboratory, Archi-Tectonics. Her innovative projects are grounded within the context of urban planning, society and technology and attest to a unique interplay of materials and methods. On January 23, 2013, the Incoming Chair of Architecture presented an impressive overview of the projects that have endowed her with international prestige.
