Complete: Weissman Foundry

Construction Winter 2018–Fall 2018

The Weissman Foundry will be a new building centrally located between the hearts of Babson’s and Olin’s campuses on Map Hill Drive across from Trim Parking Lot. The approximately 9,800 square foot building will have space available for student project workspaces, prototyping resources, experiential teaching spaces, social kitchen, and conference and group study space. The purpose of the building is to serve the needs of students pursuing entrepreneurial ventures where physical prototyping is central, promoting greater collaboration with the Olin College of Engineering, and Wellesley College; and complementing existing "innovation spaces" on campus available in the Olin Graduate School of Business and the Leonard A. Schlesinger First Year Innovation Center, particularly by providing a dedicated "messy" project workspace where students can work on projects at all hours.
