Facilities of the Department of Architecture include modern ICT laboratories, design studios, a building sciences laboratory. These labs house an environmental chamber, laser cutting and 3D printing facilities. The design studio is at the core of the architectural academic process in the Department of Architecture at AUC. The experience in the studio is the primary mode of exploration and learning. Students are encouraged to apply the content and skills learned in other courses into the design process in studio. The process, rather than the product, is focused on as the product is viewed as a cumulative reflection of that process.
