Tyler’s studios are always teeming with activity and excitement. Whether it is a studio, computer lab, art history lab, woodshop or digital fabrication lab in the Tyler building or an Architecture studio in the adjacent Architecture building, you’ll find dedicated students working day and night on their projects and research, sharing ideas and inspiration.
In January 2009, Tyler opened the doors to a new, state of the art facility located on Temple's Main Campus. An allocation of $61.5 million from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania provided the cornerstone financial support for the new 255,000 square foot building, designed by award-winning architect Carlos Jimenez. This building complements our expanding and innovative curriculum, and offers easy access to lectures, classes, and the exciting programming of Temple Contemporary, the visionary center for Tyler's exhibitions and public programs. The Tyler building also houses an academic advising center, faculty and administrative offices, and a student lounge and cafe.
The Architecture building opened spring 2012 and was designed specifically to accommodate future architects, with features that include exposed airducts, plumbing pipes and lights. The building features state of the art labs for digital and analog fabrication, designated undergraduate and graduate studios, as well as research labs for historic preservation and facilities management.
