Pressing Matters VI is an exciting compilation of design and research performed at PennDesign's Department of Architecture. It features recent work by students, news, important symposia and lectures, and is printed on recycled paper with non-toxic inks.

To summarise, the goal is to be at the forefront of advanced research and 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. The focus is also on social awareness and responsibility, and being a think-tank for critical exchanges and advanced debates within and across disciplinary boundaries. The aim is to be a connective device, inviting experts for ongoing lectures and publications in order to engage a growing international audience and create an increasing network of experts.

With approximately 310 graduate students, the Graduate Architecture Department is housed at Meyerson Hall, in the heart of the University of Pennsylvania campus, at the corner of Walnut Street and 34th Street. In addition to design studios, exhibition spaces, classrooms and offices, this facility includes state-of-the-art laboratories for computing and fabrication and two advanced research labs: the Digital Design Research Lab and the Building Simulation Group. PennDesign also introduced 3-D printers in the newly renovated studio spaces and a brand new robotics lab. The Graduate Architecture Department is currently ranked seventh from all Graduate Architecture Departments nationwide.
