Artscience : a brave new world

Paris's latest public art space, Le Laboratoire, which opened in October 2007 intends to encourage new forms of creativity, through breaking down the barriers between art and science. It's not so much an exhibition space but more a sort of networking think tank for artists, designers and scientists. But exhibitions are one of its by-products.

Brainchild of it all is David Edwards, professor of biochemical engineering at Harvard, novelist and funder of an NGO MEND ( Medicine in Need).

The food served at Le Laboratoire is in collaboration with the arty cuisinecrew of Le Transversal ( see also MAC/VAL and Maison Rouge)
