About Us

Founded in 1937 by long-time faculty member Edna Lawrence [RISD ‘20], Rhode Island School of Design’s Nature Lab inspires countless art and design projects throughout the college and beyond. Its hands-on natural history collection and studio environment offers the opportunity to examine and explore the patterns, structures and interactions of design in nature.
