The AIM Lab has both a physical and a virtual presence, and its physical space is designed to enable hybrid forms of collaboration.
The AIM Lab is physically located in the ground floor of Communication and Journalism building at Concordia’s beautiful and spacious Loyola Campus. Currently undergoing construction and renovation in collaboration with architects and consultants, it is destined to be the first lab at Concordia to be designed with comprehensive accessibility as a goal from the outset.
Once built, the Lab will house resources for our work: a 3D printer, laser cutter, video cameras and microphones, computers, editing stations, sewing machine, and hands-on maker workstations, meeting rooms, and more. These resources will be used to create and research accessible design technologies, objects, critical media, fashion items and more. The goal is to exchange, design and prototype accessibility aids and interventions of all kinds that improve the lives of disabled people.
