College of Design's Travelers Innovation Lab

The College of Design's Travelers Innovation Lab is a new physical space within Northrop - and as befitting a new space for innovation - this semester, it is being used to explore a range of potentials for its use. The College issued a call for proposals to faculty, staff, and students where collaborative teams could apply for three week residencies in the Lab. Proposals needed to discuss how their work addresses innovation. Examples include teams exploring how artists and designers can collaborate to create interactive environments, and another that will explore the redesign of ubiquitous materials and applications with the aim of improved environmental performance.
