Visit A Lab, a Living City Lab


During WeMakeThe.City, A Lab will be buzzing with activities, organised by its members. On Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 June, you can visit a theatre or dance performance at the former Shell lab, have a look at the Vertical Farm and taste some new types of lettuce, or get inspired by music lessons!

A Lab is a living lab, fusing the power of the Amsterdam creative scene, technological talent, and an unconventional spirit in a 5000 square meter hotbed for extraordinary experiments. We accommodate creatives and technicians and stimulate labs which are researching new ways of living in the network society of the near future. We develop ideas and enterprises and value failure as much as we do success.

Our strength lies in our communities, our inspiration is drawn from our location, our programmes are our success. You can hire a desk, an office or an inspirational space. As a member of A Lab, you have access to an active community and all of our events. In our physical and virtual labs, we unite the ecosystems that can change our world. To name a few: Bio, Art & Cultures, Journalism, Music, Social Robotics, Blockchain & Visual.
