Teaching roles at IALab
The Bartlett School of Architecture is looking to fill teaching roles within the Interactive Architecture Lab – please get in touch for more details
The Interactive Architecture Lab is an anti-disciplinary studio interested in the Behaviour and Interaction of Things, Environments and their Inhabitants. We design, build and experiment with Responsive Environments, Robotics and Kinetic Structures, Augmented and Multi-Sensory Interfaces, Wearable Computing and Prosthetics, the Internet of Things, Performance and Choreography. We are growing and focusing our interests particularly into augmented & virtual reality worlds and the future of dance & performance. We are looking to fill teaching roles in technical, theoretical and design aspects of our 12 month masters programme, from October 2016.
The Bartlett UCL stands for provocative ideas, boundary-pushing research and a high-achieving, award winning academic body of staff and students. The School sits within UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment consisting of equally renowned schools, labs and institutions that comprise the largest faculty of its kind in the UK. Individually, they lead their fields, in partnership, they develop new responses to pressing world issues. As a whole, they represent a world-leading, multidisciplinary faculty, united by the radical spirit of UCL. For further information about the School, please visit www.bartlett.ucl.ac.uk/architecture/
