2020 Women in Design and Architecture 
Conference, Anne Tyng: Ordered Randomness

Connecting the technical and conceptual, the work of Anne Tyng stands out within and beyond the field of architecture. Through independent projects, in addition to her work with architects Louis Kahn and Pier Luigi Nervi, Tyng explored geometry as it relates to natural form and construction. She approached design as a process and profession through teaching and writing, addressing the social, psychological, and experiential dynamics of creativity and collaboration; her work has influenced other practitioners as well as models of practice. At the center of this conference is the question, “How do we position the legacy of an architect whose interests and methods remain relevant in contemporary discourse?” Anne Tyng: Ordered Randomness reconsiders established histories by tracing Tyng’s design approach through built and unbuilt works, and further explores continuing resonances of her work as found in current architectural and engineering practices.

Organized by Women in Design and Architecture (WDA), a graduate student group formed in 2014 at Princeton University School of Architecture, this annual conference celebrates the work and legacy of a pivotal female architect or designer with contributions from international historians and scholars, in addition to artists, curators, and practitioners.
