For some, 2 years might seem like a lifetime, for others it passes in the blink of an eye. For LabCampus, the last 2 years have been a remarkable journey coming together in our physical space starting to take shape. We have gone from being an innovative idea on a piece of paper to breaking new ground at the site of Munich Airport. It’s been a rollercoaster of ideas, experimentations, revelations, and victories – and we couldn’t be prouder of where we are today.
We have spent the last 2 years focusing on the things that we believe will make LabCampus not only unique, but something way ahead of its time. In 2019, Ed. Züblin AG were named General Contractors for the construction of our first two buildings; LAB 48 and the Airport Academy. Architects AuerWeber have designed both buildings specifically to allow fluid movement between different expectations of space utility. We have also been busy creating a contemporary solution for flexible accommodation – Hyde Living – which is geared towards guests doing project work on campus.
The dream is for LabCampus to be a place where future innovators are given the chance to experiment – which is why we set up the LabCampus Terminal Testlab in the security area of Terminal 2 at Munich Airport. Since we know that we cannot go this untrodden path alone, we have been working with various partners to up our game – amongst them is the Senseable City Lab , at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). And these are just some examples of the exciting progress we have made in this short time.
So here we are 2 years in – and the world around us is about to change. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, but we are convinced, now more than ever, that the LabCampus philosophy to focus on collaboration and experimentation will be the key to its success. But for now…
Happy Birthday LabCampus!
