Where technology and digital fabrication are becoming integral to America’s education system, schools and universities lack the actual collaborative space to share ideas and experiment. In collaboration with the Tulane University’s School of Science and Engineering, One to One took on the renovation of the program’s current 4100 sf shop space in pursuit of creating the “Maker Space.” Originally under-utilized and exclusive to science and engineering students, the new space will be open to all Tulane students and house an influx of 3D printers, laser cutters, vacuum formers, traditional shop equipment, and a CNC mill.
With digital design inherently pushing designers into an isolated world of keyboard and monitor, face to face collaboration is waning. One to One pushed to design collaborative clusters for different forms of ideation in order to promote cross pollination across disciplines.
