This October, Senior Associates Allen H. Kachel, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP, and Joshua Keller, RA, along with Associate Principal Kent Suhrbier, AIA, LEED AP, will present at the 2019 International Symposium on Academic Makerspaces (ISAM) at Yale University.

ISAM, now in its fourth year, joins together academic professionals to share insight and inspiration surrounding the rapidly growing makerspace typology. The Symposium aims to make available knowledge on a variety of topics, including safety and training, best practices, successful design and programs, and educational and social impact.

At the 2019 conference, hear from Kachel, Keller, and Suhrbier about the paper they authored, “The Impact of Mission, Ownership, and Governance on Shaping the Academic Makerspace,” which discusses their observations of three common themes through the lens of four makerspace case study projects currently in design or construction at the firm.

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is one of only a few architectural practices to participate in the event and will offer our unique perspective on how to achieve a successful makerspace facility through the creation of spaces that address the circumstances of mission, ownership, and governance and foster a collaborative and interactive culture.
