Currently, the DML inhabits a temporary, pop-up space in the Marriott Library, with plans to build out a much larger, more comprehensive center in the near future. The lab will include areas for collaborative work, instruction, digital fabrication, exhibition of research, and data visualization. Projects will be driven by DML staff, as well as faculty and students from the partnering colleges. We imagine the DML to be a hub of innovation and center for dynamic partnerships across the university.
