Tasked from above to complete initiates; they rely on their own deep knowledge of technology and their ability to solve problems to see project through. I get the requirements, I look at others for examples, and then I figure out how to piece it together on a budget.

CREATIVE MAKER SPACE SPACE DETAILS Scope: New Construction Built/Updated: 2016 Institution: Public College/University LSRS Score: 18/34 The New School An classic art school gets an upgrade with state-of-the-art tools and a maker space that speeds the creative process. Herman Miller and Roski worked together to plan and outfit a highly functional space that would support 3-D printing and rapid prototyping. The space also had to be versatile enough to adapt for use as a studio or traditional classroom since, like many other schools, Roski is pressed for space. Roski requested several design considerations that would help their students and faculty work more effectively. The resulting space—and stools—far exceeded Roski’s expectations. 18 CAPACITY 1400 SQ FT PHOTOS ADDITIONAL PHOTOS (12) Open Space Stackable Stools Work Stations Private Space TYPE CREATIVE MAKER SPACE Renee Johnson Assistant Director, Facilities more + Study Lounge PHOTOS UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ROSKI SCHOOL OF ART & DESIGN WATT HALL 105
