Laboratory for Applied Building Science (L.A.B.S.)

153 Schermerhorn Extension Hall
1190 Amsterdam Avenue
New York, NY 10027

The Laboratory for Applied Building Science combines the latest technology and equipment for digital fabrication with traditional tools for wood, metal and plastic. Within the walls of the lab itself, as well as in the classroom and in the laboratory of New York City, GSAPP students continue to challenge the given methodologies of software and hardware in order to apply digital tools to their research, rather than the reverse. The integration of CNC fabrication into parametric modeling, BIM and other organizational hierarchies has challenged working models of fabrication at the scale of the prototype as well as the building, offering a level of complexity and specificity thought to be impossible until recent years.
