VT's Design-Build Laboratory

Architects spend a fair amount of time putting pencils to paper and building small models of what they’d like to construct – but how do they know their designs will work in the real world, and what does it take to get something built.  That’s what Virginia Tech hopes to teach in a whole new way.  It’s called a Design-Build Laboratory,  it’s gaining favor at schools around the country.
