Researcher

Dr Nicole Lesley Gardner

Dr Nicole Gardner is a Lecturer in the Bachelor of Computational Design in the Built Environment faculty at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Sydney, Australia, and an Australian Registered Architect. Her research engages an interdisciplinary range of theories from the Critical Philosophy of Technology to Technofeminism and material feminist perspectives to investigate human-technology relations and changing socio-technical relationships between digital and computational technologies and the design, delivery and production of the built environment.

Dr Nicole Gardner is a Lecturer in the Bachelor of Computational Design, in the Australian School of Architecture and Design, Faculty of Built Environment at the University of New South Wales. Her teaching and research explore the relationships between contemporary digital culture and design practice from the scale of architectural cyber-physical making systems to smart city strategies. She is an Australian Registered Architect (NSW 7921) with twelve years project experience in Adelaide, London, and Sydney on a range of project typologies and scales. Her work on major public transport projects such as King’s Cross Underground Station Redevelopment, London and, in her role as a Senior Architect with Arup, Sydney, design concepts for the proposed Sydney Metro, informed academic research into urban mobility and digital technologies. She has co-authored 3 book publications including Computational Design: From Promise to Practice (avedition),  Interchanging: Future designs for responsive transport environments (AADR, 2014) and Infostructure: A Transport Research Project (2010, FreerangePress) as well as numerous peer reviewed journal articles and conference papers. Nicole has taught and lectured in architecture, and design theory, at the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia, and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Her doctoral thesis adopted an interdisciplinary method and liminal theory to critique discourses on mobile technologies and public space in the context of urban transformation.
