Encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet, our FabLab supports all research and student work through hands-on experimentation. Included in this footprint are fully-equipped wood, metal, and digital facilities linked together to provide a seamless workflow. We aim to understand material performance, assemblies, construction techniques, and scales through the medium of fabrication. Industrial CNC equipment interfaces with our non-digital tooling to foster a culture of machine knowledge that permeates all facets of the design disciplines. The capabilities of the FabLab also extend into a large, 3,000 square-foot outdoor construction yard for year-round use.
