Texas Tech University recently expanded its digital design and fabrication lab by 2,500 SF to provides students with access to model shop equipment for prototyping, computational design, and computer-aided manufacturing. The new shop is located roughly 30 feet below street level in the basement-level courtyard. The new open-concept lab space is enclosed with exterior curtain walls, brick, and a dual sloping cantilever metal roof. The interior included painted, open-to-structure ceilings, an overhead crane, and new mechanical and electrical systems. Parkhill Smith & Cooper was the project architect.
