PAST Innovation Lab
PAST Innovation Lab • The PAST Foundation • Columbus, Ohio • WSA Studio
Created for the PAST Foundation, the Innovation Lab helps display the foundation’s mission in creating a curriculum for STEM schools by harnessing a learn-by-doing approach. Formally a warehouse, the PAST Innovation Lab is a collection of diverse, hands-on learning labs; small and group collaboration spaces; flexible seating areas and ample technology. Central to the design is a large “agora” space. This centralized area supports overflow from adjacent classrooms through overhead garage doors. Each classroom is denoted by its own architectural graphic above the garage door and connect to each room is their area focused technology labs. This allows the students to move easily from desk work to their hands-on learning that is critical to the success of this STEM program.
