STUDIOs & LABS
The Architecture Building
SPACE FOR CREATIVITY
Creative people need studio space and labs to test ideas, build models, share concepts, and draw. The Architecture Building is an old warehouse with raw space overlooking the St. Joseph river valley and is perfect for making things.
YOUR OWN DESK
Unlike at most schools, here we provide you with your own drafting desk, borco cover, parallel drawing ruler, desk lamp, and desk stool. If you treat it well, there’s no extra charge!
This is our home, and its halls are our gallery of creative work. Set up an appointment and visit us. One of our professors will be glad to give you a tour!
