Penelope Dean, Assistant Professor of Architecture, University of Illinois at Chicago will present the lecture "Choice by Design" as part of the KSA Lecture Series.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 5:30 PM in the Knowlton Hall Auditorium.

Penelope Dean is an architect and writer who has previously taught design and theory at OSU, the Bauhaus Dessau, and the Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam. She was the editor of the Berlage Institute’s journal hunch between 2003-2007 (issues 8-11), and served as an editorial consultant for Crib Sheets, Content, and KM3. A registered architect in the Netherlands, Dean worked at the Dutch office MVRDV from 1998-2002. Her writings have appeared in Log, Trans, Archis, Architectural Record and Praxis, and she is currently completing a PhD in Critical Studies in Architectural Culture at UCLA entitled “Delivery without Discipline.” The dissertation locates and projects the disciplinary implications of the increased quantity and transformed quality of design since 1980, and proposes how architecture might redirect the techniques of a generalized design field for its own uses.
