My name is Al-Jalil Gault, and I’m from Chicago, IL. I’m currently an Architecture student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I’m interested in engaging in critical research and discourse concerning urban places. I believe that, as we develop and analyze large-scale information systems throughout cities, we can reveal particular occurrences that ought to inform how we, as an interdisciplinary team of architects, planners, and innovators, can better design, organize, and politicize urban places. I hope to eventually lead an interdisciplinary research firm, committed to advancing the condition of architecture and cities. My hobbies include making new friends, going on adventures, enjoying house music, and appreciating Arts & Culture.
