The aim of the Rapid Prototyping Lab (LPR) is to enhance advanced training in architecture, urbanism and design through the use of information technologies.
It aims to foster an innovative approach to professional training in architecture, urbanism and design by using technology to reinforce traditional design studio teaching methods.
The traditional method offers the advantage of learning by resolving complex problems that demand creativity and an interdisciplinary approach.
In the proposed approach, the traditional physical environment of the studio is complemented by a virtual environment.
The LPR offers a range of equipment, including a laser cutter, 3D printer, vinyl cutting machine and large milling machine.
