Computational Design Laboratory


CodeLab is a post-disciplinary research and learning laboratory exploring critical questions and creative opportunities at the nexus of design, computation, and the built environment. Current work includes research into experimental design and fabrication systems, tangible interaction, spatial analytics, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, data visualization, architectural robotics, as well as into historical and theoretical questions concerning technology in design. The laboratory is housed within the School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University.
