Mat Lab

The Mat Lab, which can be found on the second floor of Shattuck Hall, was envisioned by a group of architecture students and financed in 2011 by a Solutions Generator grant from the Institute for Sustainable Solutions.

A recent project on display at the Mat Lab showcased innovative uses for discarded escalator handrail from Portland International Airport, a collaboration with Rebright Industries.

The current project on display features wall and facade surfaces made from recycled or discarded consumer waste.
