Coupled with a robust network infrastructure and expert staff, the Faculty of Architecture provides a rich educational and research driven environment, allowing students to merge traditional craft-based construction with digital-imaging and fabrication techniques. The Faculty has created a comprehensive, state-of-the-art Fabrication & Media Laboratory, through a combination of the traditional wood workshops with substantial computing, imaging facilities and digital fabrication.
The Fabrication & Media Laboratory comprises a wood workshop, CAD-lab and individual laboratories focusing on different materials and methods. It is open to all students enrolled in the Faculty of Architecture and provides a range of fabrication equipment, including laser cutters, CNC milling, 3D printers, various traditional machinery and end effectors for the robotic arms. Trained technicians are on hand to offer advice and assistance, and moderate access to the equipment.
