UCLA AUD Winter 2023 Events: Felecia Davis, PhD

January 25, 2023, 6:30 PM

Felecia Davis’s work in computational textiles questions how we live and she re-imagines how we might use textiles in our daily lives and in architecture. Davis is an Associate Professor at the Stuckeman Center for Design Computing in the School of Architecture at Pennsylvania State University and is the director of SOFTLAB@PSU.

Davis completed her PhD in Design Computation at MIT. Her work in architecture connects art, science, engineering and design and was featured by PBS in the Women in Science Profiles series. Davis’ designs were part of the MoMA’s exhibition Reconstruction: Blackness and Architecture in America. She is a founding member of the Black Reconstruction Collective, a not-for-profit group of Black architects, scholars, and artists supporting design work about the Black diaspora. Davis’ work has been recently recognized by the DigitalFUTURES Group in 2021 for the Black Flower Antenna, the New York Architectural Leagues’ 2022 Emerging Voices in Architecture program, ACADIA’s 2022 Innovative Research Award of Excellence and the 2022 National Design Award from the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Museum for Digital Design.
