The new studio building provides a space conducive to learning and studying, but also serves as a teaching tool by illustrating some of the basic tenets of modern architecture. The studio building includes digital fabrication facilities, jury and exhibitions areas, and ample room for social and public functions. The building features a vaulting roof suspended 18 feet over a floor by narrow steel pipe columns and a few fixed walls - to create a sense of openness and allow natural light to permeate throughout the building. The exposed mechanical and electrical interior elements serve as a teaching experience for students.
