media arts innovation centerUNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER

This cross-disciplinary initiative was created as a joint venture of the media arts and engineering departments of the University of Rochester. As both departments found their students increasingly seeking the expertise and advice of the other through media-enriched robotics projects. The upper level features digital studios and breakout rooms for informal collaboration or studio classes, while the lower level contains fabrication labs and assembly studios. The building is centrally situated on the main campus lawn, and tied to major internal circulation routes to increase traffic and visibility among students of all majors.
