Shapiro Design Lab

In coordination with the University's response to COVID-19, the Shapiro Design Lab Workshop is open for next-day appointments by emailing shapirodesignlab@umich.edu. The PIE Space cannot be reserved due to density issues. The Media Production Rooms will remain open for use, with regular cleaning. Remote consultations are available by emailing shapirodesignlab@umich.edu

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 located on the first floor of the Shapiro Library (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, request an audio session, and 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 shapirodesignlab@umich.edu.
