The Situated Computation + Design Lab

Vernelle A. A. Noel is an Assistant Professor in the School of Architecture and the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) and is the Director of the Situated Computation + Design Lab at Georgia Tech. The lab is dedicated to a culture of hands-on, embodied making and thinking through the examination and development of traditional craft, computational, and digital practices, interdisciplinary creativity, and their intersections with society. The lab is inter and multidisciplinary with students, faculty, industry, and community partners for collaborative research and projects for new reconfigurations of design practice, pedagogy, and publics.
