Pressing Matters VII is an exciting compilation of design and research performed at PennDesign's Department of Architecture, it features recent student work, news, important symposia and lectures, and is printed on recycled paper with non-toxic inks. The Pressing Matters series has been published annually since 2013. As society faces many challenges, including global warming and environmental change, pollution and waste, transition to new energy and resource economies, the redistribution and reorganization of political and economic power worldwide; globalization of the construction and development industries; population growth, shrinkage and migration; urban intensification and attrition; privatization of public sector activities; and the transformation of cultural identities and social institutions, we seek to bring the expansion of expertise and creativity in architecture to bear on these challenges. To summarize, our goal is to be at the forefront of advanced research & design by creating an advanced research institute that focuses on new design methodologies and future manufacturing through the interlinked intelligence of digital design, scripting, and robotics. We also focus on social awareness and responsibility, and are a think tank for critical exchanges and advanced debates within and across disciplinary boundaries. We are a connective device through inviting experts for ongoing lectures and publications in order to engage a growing international audience and an increasing network of experts.
