A project by Diana Cristobal, Jessica Ngan, and Bart-Jan Polman 

Are We Normal? focuses on the architectural handbooks developed by Henry Dreyfuss and Ernst Neufert. While appearing to provide objective knowledge, these books also document existing conceptions of normality. By documenting the changes in these handbooks over time, Are We Normal? attempts to show that the "normal" is a fluid concept that is constantly redefined by the societies that set normative systems.
