One of the most exciting developments in technology today is the growing convergence of diverse analogue and digital tools, and the emergence of a new technology ecosystem for creating architecture and the built environment. You’ll find all kinds of tools in the Lab, available for you to experiment with in one seamless environment.

We’re developing online guides to all our tools so you can learn how to use them before you arrive. You’ll find a small selection below, and the beginnings of our online guides.

Purchase and collect your material using click and collect from the Lab Shop before your slot begins. You must be finished and cleaning the equipment, using the anti-bac wipes provided,  5 minutes before your slot finishes. A face mask must be worn at all times.

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!
