Center for Applied Research

The Center for Applied Research (CfAR) in the Department of Architecture is a student-focused collaborative environment for investigating emerging fabrication technologies and methods. CfAR supports the department’s core principle of thinking through making by providing a dynamic network of spaces for prototyping and applied research. Students have access to equipment, expertise, and guidance across many areas of fabrication, including CNC milling, 3D printing, woodworking, laser-cutting, and robotics. Please see the Center for Applied Research website for additional information about facilities, experts, and resources.
