Ingeborg M. Rocker was appointed Associate Professor of Architecture at Harvard in 2011, after serving as assistant professor there since 2005. Rocker’s theoretical work is devoted to questions regarding the impact of media on the perception, production, and thinking of architecture. As a designer and teacher of design, she deploys computer modeling as a tool for giving form to theoretical hypotheses in a didactic way. Rocker’s ongoing research has been widely publicized through numerous international magazines and books.

A generation ago, the post-modern quest for variation was a forceful plea against the dominant cultural technologies of the mechanical age. Today, digital technologies can deliver variations of all sorts and almost at no cost. Yet unlimited design variability inevitably challenges deeply ingrained assumptions of authorship. Contemporary digital culture and technologies favor and nurture a new notion of design indeterminacy, where objects are increasingly seen as systems able to self-organize and find the best solutions by themselves, when digitally empowered to do so.
