The Library of Architecture, Design and Construction is home to a Materials Lab that offers a hands-on and interdisciplinary sensory experience of building and construction materials.
The Materials Lab provides students and faculty with a current, curated, fully cataloged, and circulating collection of materials samples. All materials circulate for one week (7 days).
Please let Kasia Leousis (ksl0008[at]auburn.edu) know if you have any questions about the Materials Lab, this guide or research in architecture, design, or building science.
