Ryan Roark, Ventulett Fellow 2019-2021

Ryan began her two-year term as Ventulett NEXT Generation Visiting Fellow in the Fall 2019 semester and is an architectural designer and writer who focuses the role of history in building design and urban planning. She was a 2017 KPF Paul Katz Fellow in London, where she studied different typologies of design interventions into old buildings and the attitudes to history they represent. Her NEXT Fellowship research and design work at Georgia Tech will continue this formal, tectonic, and historical investigation as well as examining the role augmented and mixed reality will play in the design of the 21st-century city.

Vernelle A. A. Noel, Ventulett Fellow 2018-2020

Vernelle began her two-year term as Ventulett NEXT Generational Visiting Fellow in the Fall 2018 semester. As a research scientist, computational designer, artist, and architect, Noel’s work largely focuses on craft and cultural design practices, computational making, and lightweight architecture.

Jonathan Dessi-Olive, Ventulett Fellow 2017-2019

Jonathan served as the School of Architecture's first Ventulett NEXT Visiting Fellow. His work takes a critical approach to technology while integrating history and theory of architecture, contemporary compression-only construction, and computational design. Jonathan is now an assistant professor of architecture at Kansas State University.

About the Ventulett NEXT Generation Visiting Fellows

The Ventulett NEXT Generation Visiting Fellows is a new initiative at the School of Architecture intended for young faculty who are at the beginning of their careers and interested in interdisciplinary teaching and research that merges design, technology and culture.

Fellows teach design studios and workshops at both the undergraduate and graduate level and participate actively in the life of the school. The workshops can be used to assist the Fellows in their own directed design research that will result in a public exhibition and lecture at the school.  

Ventulett NEXT Generation Visiting Fellows are given an unparalleled opportunity to advance their individual interests through teaching and design research utilizing the full resources of the College of Design including our Digital Fabrication Lab that houses a suite of industrial-scale CNC equipment.

Fellows conduct interdisciplinary work with junior faculty from other schools within the College of Design and across campus including computing, engineering, and science, and are given support in making these connections. Fellows also have the opportunity to work with SoA research faculty and Ph.D. students on projects of common interest.

Announcements for new Fellow applicants are made each fall and applications are reviewed beginning in November of each year.
