Please join us for an evening with makers Robert Bridges and Bill Young, creators of Shelter 2.0, a digitally fabricated transitional shelter. Shelter 2.0 is an open digital design that's freely shared online @ Shelter20.com. It's also a fabrication system that can be quickly replicated wherever there's a need for small structures.
Hear the story, see the Shelter 2.0 + Q & A, and enjoy light refreshments & a tour of Fab Lab DC.

In the spirit of MIT’s Fab Lab community outreach project, FAB LAB DC is bringing a high-tech, fabrication laboratory/community workshop to the heart of the Nation’s Capital to advance creativity,innovation, and collaborative projects.
FAB LAB DC will serve and foster the creative community by providing access to digital fabrication technology, rapid prototyping, and the global Fab Lab network. Fab Labs enable people to use technology to create, experiment and produce, shifting the paradigm away from people merely “consuming” technology toward using technology to create solutions.
With a focus on life-long learning and emphasis on investigative teamwork, FAB LAB DC plans to provide a range of educational opportunities for people of all ages, including access to the international Fab Lab network and Fab Academy, which extend opportunities for information sharing, research, and broader social impact.
FAB LAB DC is for local community members, life-long learners, inventors, entrepreneurs, creatives, and professionals.
