Event Description: 

Supernormal: An exploration of post-digital design practice.

Elizabeth Bowie Christoforetti is founder of Supernormal, a practice that bridges the disciplines of architecture, urban design, and planning, with the goal of bringing increased sensitivity and systematization to practice using improved quantitative methods. This approach requires careful attention to urban systems and the constraints of physical development and prioritizes methods of understanding and projecting change over time and change over location as first principles in design practice.
Elizabeth received a Master in Architecture with Distinction from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, where she has also taught design studios in the Architecture department. She also holds degrees from
Bowdoin College and The Art Institute of Chicago. From 2014-2016, Elizabeth conducted research within the Social Computing Group at the MIT Media Lab, where she utilized emerging technologies to better align human experience with urban design and development.
