Gulfstream Center for Design

SCAD reconstructed this 42,000 square foot former warehouse to include six classrooms, two conference or seminar rooms, two CAD labs, a rapid prototyping and printing lab, design studios, a bench room, a CNC lab, a spray booth for painting models, a welding facility, plastics-working area, industrial design and furniture design galleries, and an extensive woodworking and metal fabrication studio, among many other state-of-the-art features. Students in each of the design tracks embark on classes that emphasize creation and representation skills, planning and methodology, fabrication, and transformation from concept to practical application and use.

Images from the facility

In studios, labs and workshops at the Gulfstream Center, students work with wood, metal, plastics and composites.

Large-format printers, plotters and 3-D printers allow students to draft and build models of their designs for presentation in class or to clients.

Laser cutters allow furniture design students to create precision models.

SCAD students designed and built this working, street-legal prototype car, the EXO Spyder.

The entrance to Gulfstream serves as a gallery space for student work.
