CRAIDL is an AI research platform to bridge the gap between industry and academia. Our goal is to bring artificial intelligence to creatives, designers and architects through the use of new technological applications. We operate under the umbrella of CoDeLab at the School of Architecture, at Carnegie Mellon University.

The CodeLab at Carnegie Mellon University is a multidisciplinary collaborative formed to address complex issues at the intersection of art, design, architecture, and engineering.


CRAIDL’s motivation is to bring artificial intelligence to creative fields, such as architecture, design, art or media, in what we call AID—Artificial Intelligence for Design. We believe that industry and academia can be closer together through applied research.

Engage in Research

CRAIDL’s goal is to bring academia and industry together to advance interdisciplinary AI research. Partnerships are an integral piece of our work. There are many ways external partners can get involved in our work, including research collaborations, sponsored funding, gifts, equipment donations, and recruitment. If you are interested in partnering in research or supporting our work, please contact Denise Mieszkowski, Associate Director of Corporate & Foundation Relations at 412-268-2918 or dm1@cmu.edu.


CRAIDL is initiated by Ardavan Bidgoli, Manuel Ladron de Guevara, Jinmo Rhee and Pedro Veloso. We are PhD students and candidates at the Computational Design program at the School of Architecture, at Carnegie Mellon University. We are advised by Daragh Byrne and Daniel Cardoso Llach and Ramesh Krishnamurti.


The Code Lab is a multidisciplinary research and learning laboratory within the School of Architecture at Carnegie Mellon University. It houses a dynamic community of graduate students and faculty investigating relationships between people, spaces and computational ideas and processes. Current research includes speculative design tools, spatial analytics, computational making, virtual and augmented realities, data visualization, architectural robotics, tactical media, as well as research into historical and theoretical questions concerning technology in design. Code Lab faculty and students often collaborate with partners in the scientific fields and the humanities, and endeavor to form and maintain alliances with peer centers in academia and industry both nationally and internationally.
