As part of the Center for Experimental Structures (CES), the Concentration in Morphology leverages the long history of interest in form studies with a focus on exploring the relationship between Form and Space (geometry, topology), Form and Force (structural morphology), Form and Time (dynamic morphology) enabled by computation, fabrication, construction, and emerging technologies. Within this overview, different course offerings focus on any combination of these topics. Since D'Arcy Thompson's pioneering work a century ago, the generative principles of Form have become central to our understanding of the diverse structures we encounter in nature and man-made constructs, phsyical and even conceptual. This paradigm has percolated within many fields of knowledge since and guides the academic and research activities at the Center for Experimental Structures at Pratt Institute, School of Architecture.
