– Assistant Professor in Practice of Architecture, Harvard GSD

– Founding Principal, Supernormal
Elizabeth Bowie Christoforetti is founding principal at Supernormal, an architecture, urban design, and research practice focused on the design of form and processes that balance contextual and cultural relevance with the contemporary imperative to scale beyond a single instance, and to reach more people and urban places. Her practice explores the deep cultural, typological, and process-based implications of scalable systems in late capitalism and was founded as a home for research in practice that bridges the analytic, critical design, and theoretical capacities required to create meaningful design outcomes in the 21st century world. The work of Supernormal includes architecture, spatial analysis, process design, and urban design. Since founding Supernormal in 2016, Elizabeth has balanced the production of built work and digital processes with writing, publication, and exhibition.
