ASU GENERATOR LABS
4,631 sqft adaptive resue
The Ira Fulton School of Engineering Generator Labs represents the next generation of "Maker Spaces" for the school. The labs combine multiple users and programs by creating highly adaptable spaces that fuse the funtions of traditional lecture classrooms, studio space and event venues. The project provides a space where engineering students gather, generate, test, present and eventually seek crowdsource funding in an open-air marketplace.
Transparency is central to the collaborative process and is embodied within the design in the form of floor-to-ceiling glazing that reveals the program to the student population walking down one of the universities major malls.
The project is located within the Ralph Haver design G-Wing. Special attention was taken to design a space which harmonized with the strong lines and vocabulary of the 1960's structure while portraying the innovative nature of the new occupants.
