The New Normal is a multidisciplinary postgraduate programme at the Strelka Institute which focuses on research and design for the city and explores opportunities and challenges posed by emerging technologies for interdisciplinary design practices.

The New Normal is a 3-year initiative Strelka started in 2016. Each year the Institute admits 30 students from around to world for a 5-months research cycle as part of this longer initiative.

This third year of The New Normal continues to build on the work of the previous years surrounding planetary-scale computation, logistics, platform design and emergent networks of value. The focus shifted particularly towards the investigation of algorithmic governance, automation and landscape scale and alternative models to the dominant posthuman discourse.
