Innovation & Technology

At PennDesign, we believe that the best practitioners, the innovative thinkers, can do the most with new technology. They can explore the limits of what’s possible and reinvent the future of our professions.

Throughout our history, we’ve attracted visionary thinkers who have unlocked new directions in design, planning, preservation and art. They’ve changed our understanding of materials and forms and made advances that challenge us to consider the world in new contexts and dimensions.

We aim to continue a tradition of visionary thinking by ensuring access to the latest technological advancements, challenging faculty to discover new avenues of research and preparing students to excel -- to generate elegant solutions that can change our understanding of the work and the world.
