Living Station Lab

The Living Station Lab is the research laboratory connected to the stations within the Willem de Kooning Academy.  In the Lab, which is located at BL 4.1, we are questioning material practice within arts and design and investigate how to make and collaborate with ‘living’ and biological systems.

Students get introduced to collaborating with living ecosystems and get acquainted with topics regarding biomaterials, biophilic- and regenerative design.

The Living Station Lab is a learning environment with facilities and technologies to investigate and grow different micro-organisms. We have microscopes, a sterile Bio cabinet, incubators, an autoclave and all the materials to work safely in the lab.

The Station Skills: Welcome to the Living Station is a requirement when you want to work by yourself in the lab. This Station Skills teaches you the basics on working with micro-organisms.
