Shapiro Design Lab

The Shapiro Design Lab is an ever-evolving experimental space in the Library focused on creating engaged learning opportunities and experiences across research, artistic, and teaching projects. We are comprised of two learning communities (Interns and Residents) and three spaces (PIE Space, Media Production Rooms, and Workshop), which feature a variety of tools: 3D printers, audio/video hardware and software, letterpress, prototyping supplies, and more.

We encourage you to schedule a consultation or sign up for our mailing list. Also, if you are interested in using some of our spaces or equipment, enroll in our Canvas course and complete the relevant training module(s). If you have other questions about the Lab or what happens here, please email
