The Stuckeman Center for Design Computing (SCDC) is a multidisciplinary laboratory at Penn State devoted to advanced research and learning in computational design. SCDC researchers explore computation as a subject of creative and scholarly inquiry in design and engage different scales and methods: from the territorial to the micro, from the theoretical to the material, and from the applied to the speculative and critical. The SCDC is supported by a generous gift by the Stuckeman family. Imagined as an annual event, the first SCDC Open House combines an exhibition of computational design research and coursework directed by faculty in the Stuckeman School and the School of Visual Arts, and a symposium with emerging scholars and practitioners of computational design. Under the theme of “Design Across Boundaries” the Open House and Symposium were hosted by the center on May 5, 2015.
