Artengine is currently working on a plan to equip and design the
possible lab and workshop spaces in the new Arts Court building.
Since the City's Finance & Economic Development Council had approved the
Arts Court Redevelopment Implementation Plan on July 13th, the resident
organizations in the building have been working closely with the City
and the architects in order to build up a substantial plan that our
voices are heard and our and needs are fully reflected.
As one of the core initiators of the Media Hub idea at the new Arts
Court, Artengine's submission in this regard included two new spaces;
1. Fab Lab - Clean Space (800 sq. ft.)
Tools and uses: 3D printing, 3D scanning, laser
cutting, soldering, circuit prototyping.
The principal collaborative space for production
and hands on instruction.
The Fab Lab could have some transparency to the
outside Foyer passage, and inwards to the entrance area of Artengine and
Some tools for the Fab Lab are already in
operations in the current Artengine Lab while others will be newly
The Fab Lab is connected to the Workshop, and is
visible from the Nicholas Street walk way.
2. Workshop - Dirty space (500 sq. ft.)
Tools and uses: band saw; CNC mill; drill press;
A space for more significant tools that create
dust and debris.
This new space will be outfitted with tools to the
specifications of the space given safety and workspace issues with this
Sound isolation from Artengine Office would be
essential, while complete isolation from the Fab Lab would not be
Entered from Artengine through the Fab Lab, a more
practical connection to the Theater Workshop and loading dock in the new
facility would be ideal.
In response, the architects has asked our input in the area of facility
and technical requirements.
Attached is a Room Activity Data Sheet from the architects, which we can
demonstrate what kind of facilities and technical support we require in
the new spaces.
I wonder whether any of you would be interested in sharing your views
and expertise in this area.
