Flexible Space

The School of Architecture is a state-of-the-art example of sustainable design. It's a spacious, adaptive re-use of Marywood's former gymnasium and natatorium. It features:

  • Two levels of open studios
  • Wood and metal shops
  • Digital Fabrication Lab
  • Plaster-casting room
  • Printers and plotters
  • Computer-Aided Design (CAD) lab
  • Reference library

A two-story commons under a continuous skylight harvests abundant natural light throughout the day and serves as the building's "agora" - an open, shared, central space for educational exchanges among students and faculty. This is an ideal place for group discussions, debates, displays, and project critiques.

Every student is provided an individual work space with a drawing board, personal storage area, pin-up wall, and space for a laptop.
