The Center for Applied Research (CfAR) in the Department of Architecture is a student focused collaborative environment for investigating emerging fabrication technologies and methods. CfAR supports the department’s core principle of thinking through making by providing a dynamic network of spaces for prototyping and applied research. Students have access to equipment, expertise, and guidance across many areas of fabrication, including CNC milling, 3D printing, woodworking, laser-cutting, and robotics.

Lab users must complete the appropriate training module for lab spaces and equipment prior to use. The CfAR fabrication labs at Wentworth are available to Architecture Students after completing a lab orientation in sophomore year. See training + workshops page for more information.
