NEW IN THE BOTANICAL GARDEN:
THE BIOTOPIA LAB
As an interim platform, the BIOTOPIA Lab offers a taste of BIOTOPIA, its vision and values. It is a dynamic exhibition space, an event platform and an experimental workshop all at the interface of science, art, design and culture. At the same time, the BIOTOPIA Lab offers an insight into the development process of the new museum.
With workshops, raised garden beds, an experimental space, changing mystery objects and special exhibitions as well as interdisciplinary events, it arouses curiosity about the topics of BIOTOPIA and invites people to engage with the current status of project.
