MSE Teaching Lab
This prestigious university had a very clear vision for its renovated teaching lab: the optimum combination of active group learning and hands-on experimentation for those entering research in the field of Material Science and Engineering,
That called for robust infrastructure (electrical power and data, specialty gases, heating, air conditioning and exhaust systems), leading-edge technology (microscopy, high-speed data and audio-visual integration), and the aesthetic you’re not supposed to notice (clear sight lines, hidden conduits, and borrowed light to name a few).
The effect is a bright and inviting space with storage neatly hidden behind the marker boards. The team-sized tables catalyze the group dynamics and the adjacent labs turn theory into reality.
