Chantelle Niblock

Lecturer in Architecture

Dr Chantelle Niblock is a lecturer and researcher in architecture at Queens University of Belfast and a member of the Culture and Society research cluster, since 2018.  Prior to this role, she was Director of the MArch Digital Architecture and Tectonics course at the University of Nottingham.  In her current role, she is responsible for developing research and teaching specific content for delivery of modules at undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD level.  Chantelle’s research interests include the practice and theory of digital design, digital interpretation of historic architecture, collaborative learning in architectural education, and the study of design behaviour.  She completed her PhD (sponsored by AHRC) in 2012; it explored the influence of digital tools on the creative architectural design process, which included a comparative study between expert and novice architects.

Current research focuses on the utilisation of 3D laser scanning and immersive technology (including augmented and virtual reality) to create interactive archives and spatial narratives of architectural heritage, from scaled model (Frederick Kiesler: Endless House) to historic building (Lincoln Cathedral).
