Nicole Koltick is the director of the Design Futures Lab where she leads a graduate research group in critical design practices and speculative proposals focused on three main areas of inquiry: tangible interaction in the built environment, the incorporation of novel advancements in science and computation into our built environments and new models for ambient communication. Koltick teaches a variety of seminars that explore advanced computational strategies for design and fabrication within the built environment. Koltick’s current research interests include: future speculation, robotics, computation, advanced manufacturing, artificial intelligence, speculative realism and interactive environments. She is interested in exploring the boundaries between technology, science, the “natural”, the built environment and its inhabitants. Koltick has been published recently in VOLUME, fresh punches and the lab has been featured on thecreator'sproject, suckerpunch, Architizer, dezeen, fast company and other technology and design blogs.
