Lehigh's vision is to transform the former home of Bethlehem Steel's research operations, an elegant but long unoccupied 1950s high-bay industrial complex, into a unique home for a diverse groups of students, entrepreneurs, researchers, and faculty.
Our design proposes a “mixing box” addition to connect the existing office/lab building to three high-bay buildings to create a dynamic unified space. Flexible collaborative Makerspaces are adaptable to support evolving needs and technologies.

Pushing the Envelope
Future phases of this project will rejuvenate exterior elements and create dedicated new space for the Data X initiative. This unique academic endeavor allows faculty and students to leverage the University’s interdisciplinary strengths by using computer and data science to push the boundaries of research, teaching, and learning in fields including bioengineering, data analytics, and digital media.Innovation Collaborative Space
