Architecture Department provides facilities that support teaching and learning, and caters to both research activities and consultation services. These expertly-run facilities are accessible to students, researchers and the industry. Architecture Department has several studio rooms and laboratories that are used by our students on a daily basis for hands-on practical experience. These laboratories also form an auxiliary support system to our research centers, where our researchers use state-of-the-art equipment to focus on their exploratory and experimental research activities. Apart from the studios and labs, there are also portfolio archive room, gallery, meeting room etc.
In our faculty there are 25 laboratories that mainly function as spaces for our students to conduct sample preparation, testing and analysis, through our student-focused, hands-on, experiential learning techniques. Furthermore, the laboratories are also used by our researchers for expanding their creativity and innovation. The laboratories are some located at the FKAAS building in Main Campus while some are in the Architecture building in City Campus which are managed by the Laboratory Manager with the help of Heads of Laboratory, and manned by skilled and qualified assistant engineers, science officers and laboratory assistants.

These well-equipped spaces provide a conducive environment for teaching and learning purposes. In addition, all laboratories in Architecture Department have Briefing Rooms that are used for the aforesaid purposes.
