The digital fabrication laboratory at the Welsh School of Architecture is a facility for the digital fabrication of computer-generated components and models.
The Living Lab was designed to encourage and support greater engagement with local communities, industry and the professions, as well as with fellow academics in Cardiff University and beyond.
The Hybrid studio provides an ideal environment for the reviews, tutorials and conversations that are so central to design teaching and learning.
The School has a Media Lab which is open 24/7, except during Bute Building closures.
The workshop is managed by Dan Tilbury and assisted by Mark Blenkin. Together they have a breadth of skills in carpentry, furniture design and model making.
Our postgraduate students have their own dedicated spaces within Bute building for both rest and study.
The Exhibition Space is at the centre of the building and is used by staff and students for large meetings, conferences, events, exhibitions and open days.
We are within a major reconfiguration of the Welsh School of Architecture which includes redesigning our Bute Building.
