Learning and understanding how machines, material systems, and manufacturing processes work is no minor task. It takes a model builder four years to complete vocational training, and the same is true for many jobs that deal with the built environment. Our goal is not to train every student to become an architectural model builder. Instead, our goal is to convey practical techniques and safe work procedures for machines and processes that enable students to make their models and use them during the design process as tools for spatial investigations. 
Completing the different courses will grant you access to workshops or individual machines in combination with your Raplab-Account.
