Barbara and Leonard Littman Architecture and Design Library

Housed in Weston Hall, the Barbara and Leonard Littman Library is fittingly located in the heart of the College of Architecture and Design. Heavily used by students, faculty and alumni, the Littman Library is not only a repository of knowledge, but also a central part of the active information generation and dissemination at CoAD.

Idea Factory

The Idea Factory will provide an opportunity for individuals and teams to generate ideas, products and proprietary designs.  It will be an exciting, creative environment; it will inspire and encourage the development of ideas; it will create opportunities to develop intellectual property; it will be a magnet for the best and the brightest designers.

The facilities include the network and IT infrastructure that encompass all computers in the design studios as well as specialized laboratories and equipment including the Architecture Teaching Lab, Art + Design Freshman Labs, Animation Lab, Physical Computing Lab, and digital fabrication equipment located throughout the College.
