In fabschool we track Architecture School projects that are examining various aspects of off-site residential fabrication. School program formats can include research projects, design studios, design build programs etc.

We only list single family dwelling projects that offer information online that we can link to, either on an official school site or a student site.
Students: If there is no official site for your work then use a form to send us your project info (don't be shy!) - we will host your data.
If you are aware of a school program that has posted some findings online please let us know by using one of the forms on the contactfab page. Thank you.
