This past semester, the UF College of Design, Construction & Planning (DCP) welcomed Dr. Vernelle A. A. Noel. An assistant professor of architecture and computational design, Noel is also the founding director of the Situated Computation + Design Lab, helping to lead DCP in UF’s AI initiative.
In August, as part of Mozilla’s Creative Media Awards, Noel received a $30,000 grant for her project titled Black Arts + Culture: Generative Traditions with AI and Design in Carnival. The project uses AI to remix Black histories of design, art and dance.
