Project Features
  • Fabrication facility
  • Assembling space
  • Fosters innovation
Prairie View A&M Fabrication Center is a new facility for the School of Architecture. This is an innovative space that houses a variety of equipment to allow students to build, develop and test ideas. The building is divided into assembling space and equipment spaces. Students are able to use multiple methods and equipment to build their work. The intent is for the process of construction to be done in one location offering opportunities of peer to peer learning, collaborating, and cross disciplinary interaction.
