Field Trip: WIT, MassART and MFA
Wentworth Institute of Technology
The Bray Lab staff and summer interns visited the Center for Applied Research at Wentworth Institute of Technology in their Department of Architecture. The Center supports bachelors (sophomore year and above) and masters students in Architecture – around 450 students.
The newest addition to the Center – Kuka Robotic Arm
Lee MacDonald, Studio Manager at MassART gave us a tour of some of the fabrication spaces at MassART.
Finally, we wrapped up our field trip with a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts which offers free admission for Tufts students.
