Transition Plans for Rand Hall and Mui Ho Fine Arts Library

The Rand Hall first-floor fabrication shops were closed in May 2017 to prepare for the construction of Mui Ho Fine Arts Library (FAL) and building renovations. The shops and the fine arts library circulation desk and other services have been relocated to other areas within AAP until August 2019.

Annex space moves to Milstein Hall storage space.

The Rand Hall annex was relocated to the Milstein Hall storage area, B09. This location is central to Tjaden Hall and the Milstein and Sibley hall studio spaces. All existing carts are provided and cordless tools can be checked out for use after hours. The AAP Supply Store has also temporarily moved here during construction.

Digital Fabrication, Seminar, and Critique Spaces

The Digital Fabrication Lab has moved to the second floor of East Sibley Hall. The new space houses all the existing laser cutters and 3D printers. There is an additional desktop 3D printer area, which allows students to work with different types of printers, and an electronics soldering bench that can be used to build and test Arduino style controls and sensors. A new classroom and critique spaces have also been completed on the second floor.

A work area was installed between The Foundry and the Kiln Shed and has been outfitted with electric and gas welding capabilities, a grinder, a belt sander, and an assortment of hand tools from the Rand Hall metal working area. A covered trailer is being used to store all the equipment, tools, and safety gear at night.
