The Fabrication Lab is in the Marylebone Campus of the University of Westminster in the heart of London. We're a specialist lab focused on emerging technologies for architecture and the built environment, and an experimental centre for teaching, research and knowledge exchange. We have purpose-built areas for all aspects of analogue and digital making, materials and environmental testing, and for exploring digitally xpanded realities. Please browse the site to find out more.
WHILE WE ARE SLOWLY EMERGING FROM PANDEMIC LOCKDOWN, ONLY SOME OF THE LAB IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR USE, INCLUDING: THE LASER LAB, 3D PRINT FARM AND THE LAB SHOP. THESE WILL BE OPEN EVERY DAY, MONDAY-FRIDAY 14:00-17:00. All areas of the Lab that are open are equipped with acrylic screens and limited to restricted occupation numbers for your safety. For help making your projects at home, visit the Lab Clinic online by click the button above, MONDAY-FRIDAY 12:00-13:00.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Lab soon!
While we've been holed-up in lockdown, we've been busy upgrading and transforming our website, as you will see. We're preparing the site for a major re-launch at the end of June. In the meantime, you'll find everything you need to access the places in the Lab that are currently open, but may find some of the other links and menu items are not yet active. Please bear with us, they'll be coming very soon and will be well worth the wait! Bear in mind also, that many of the images you will see on our site are from pre-Lockdown, and represent occupation of the Lab that we are not currently able to support.
You must be logged in to book.
Following the recent announcement from the Government about further restrictions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, the Lab will unfortunately now not be open to visitors at least until the 1st February. We will review the situation then and hopefully may again be able to open the Lab Shop and to take bookings for the Lasers and CNC machines. Our online support will continue as usual. Please join us for help making your models at the 12.00 daily clinic. Our online teaching will also resume next week, with the start of the first Kinetic Architecture Workshop, Monday at 11.00, for all Architecture BA first years. We look forward to you joining us then.
Sorry for any inconvenience caused by the latest restrictions. We hope as you do to see you in the Lab again soon!
David and the Lab Team
