Labs and Workshops - Architecture

Materials Lab

Our 6,000-square-foot Materials Lab encompasses the Model Shop and Wood Shop, an integrated resource containing an arrange of large- and small-scale woodworking equipment. The Metal Shop houses a foundry and welding stations, available to Architecture as well as Art students. A Casting Shop for concrete and plasterwork is also housed within the School of Architecture. Welding classes are offered to upper-division Architecture students at various times throughout the year, and the Shop Manager holds shop and equipment orientations at the start of each term.

The Digital Lab holds a digital classroom which offers network/server/software connectivity for students with their own School-mandated laptop computers for use during digital graphics classes. This space also includes a print suite with several computer terminals, and scanning, printing and plotting equipment. Architecture students are also afforded access to the Mac Lab in Neuberger Hall.
