Located in Villanova’s Falvey Library, the Idea Accelerator is a flexible, collaborative space designed to help foster ideas, innovation and interaction within the Villanova community. Though open to all students, faculty and the surrounding community, the space is Home Base for the University’s Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship (ICE) Institute. The space was designed to be transformative in order to accommodate both small and large groups (up to 125 people), and can easily be configured for individual use, semi-private meetings as well as classroom-type gatherings. Multiple groups are able to take advantage of the room simultaneously. Elements that drive the functionality and creativity include a Tinkering Lab, operable “garage doors” that partition the space, soft, low seating, moveable/stackable furniture, writeable surfaces in various areas, multiple flat screens and a projector/screen setup.
