Sayjel Vijay Patel

Cambridge, MA, US



Sayjel is a recent graduate of the MIT School of Architecture, co-founder of MIT Code Kitchen; a group that supports computer programming literacy in architecture and planning education, and a past collaborator and researcher with the MIT Center for Advanced Urbanism, MIT Senseable City Lab, and the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Starting in 2015, Sayjel will begin a year-long research and teaching fellowship at MIT and the Singapore University of Technology and Design where he will extend his Master’s thesis which investigated handheld 3D-scanning as a medium of creative production. Sayjel hopes to develop new methods, concepts, and tools that connect subjective human experience, and intuition, such as tacit knowledge, within the otherwise explicitly-defined framework of computational design.
