FutureLab is a non-profit inter-disciplinary research forum sponsored by 3M that takes place in Munich, Germany. As an alternative model to the traditional studio, FutureLab functions as a platform at the intersection of architecture, art, and society. Students are asked not only contribute their own visions for future design potentials, but also to engage a select group of engineers, artists, manufacturers, writers, and designers from Bavaria and the surrounding region into a discussion about the undiscovered possibilities at the leading-edge of design.
