Kent State University will begin construction in April of 2019 on the $50 million Design Innovation Hub in Kent, Ohio. Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, the 68,000-sf project will feature two maker spaces, one housing 3D printing, laser cutting, and digital tool technologies, with a wood and metal shop offering space for prototyping and model building. The interdisciplinary building will also accommodate a 350-seat dining hall with seven food venues, administrative offices for the Design Innovation Initiative, and a collaboration studio called The Central Think Tank. Completion is expected in August of 2020.
