About This Project

Metropolitan Architecture Studio designed the new University of Akron Corrosion Engineering Laboratory, as part of the Corrosion Engineering Education and Research Initiative, the first of its kind in the country.

This state of the art laboratory, dedicated to study of corrosion and its effects on common materials is designed for both teaching and research and according to LEED and Labs 21 principles. The lab was designed to promote flexibility in the work environment and to accommodate a variety of lab experiments involving material testing.  This laboratory served as the prototype for the University of Akron Wolfs Ledges Laboratory Facility.
