PDL Terms of use

Professor Wallace is making the Product Design Lab (PDL) in room 3-004 available for 2.009 students for use primarily outside of normal Pappalardo hours. The space is very well suited for sketch model work.

This is a new space that cost over $1.6M to renovate and we must take care of it! If we don't, it won't remain available for 2.009.
