The School of Design and Creative Technologies is housed on the fourth floor of the Doty Fine Arts (DFA) Building but also has classrooms and offices located in the Art building.
In 2017, the College of Fine Arts partnered with the Fine Arts Library to renovate the fourth floor of the Fine Arts Library in the Doty Fine Arts Building to create new, flexible teaching spaces — classrooms, labs and collaboration spaces for the Departments of Design and Arts and Entertainment Technologies, as well as other programs in the college.
The school is also collaborating with the Department of Theatre and Dance, the Butler School of Music and the Department of Art and Art History to renovate existing spaces to serve both students in those departments and students in the School of Design and Creative Technologies.
The Foundry is a makerspace open to all UT students and faculty that serves as a venue for the next generation of new ideas, research, art and inventions. The Foundry offers 3-D modeling and printing resources; an audio/video production and editing studio; an interactive game and mobile applications studio; a studio for microelectronics and animatronics; a high-tech music production studio; and a multi-faceted fiber art studio to experiment with technology-enhanced costumes and wearables. The Foundry is located on the third floor of the Doty Fine Arts Building inside of the Fine Arts Library.
