How does an outdoor lab act as a prototype for others and inspire the scientists of tomorrow?
The Science Lab is a space for learning and testing ideas, providing methods and tools for children to explore their scientific and creative potential. Every available surface is a workspace for sharing thoughts and creating meaning among students and teachers, with focus and depth. March Studio created a building that reflects the unique identity, core values and culture of Caltech University and acts as a prototype for a children's laboratory that can inspire other science-based curriculums. The Lab itself supports the school's mission by acting as a tool for documentation, research, creativity and experimentation.
