It’s dedication day for Harvard’s innovation lab in Boston, but the buzz has been building all fall.
Shepley worked with Harvard to fast-track the creation of Batten Hall and the i-lab, transforming the old studios of WGBH into a high-energy space for campus and community. Say goodbye to the studios where Julia Child and Zoom! were filmed and hello to workshops and wide-open (and wired) spaces.
Or should we say ‘Hi,’ in the spirit of the i-lab’s signature logo, which Shepley created as part of the innovation lab’s brand?
Even before today’s events, i-lab director Gordon Jones has brought in speakers from PayPal and IDEO among the series of innovation rock stars… and the i-lab hasn’t looked back since.
Mark Zuckerberg’s visit to the innovation lab last week (and his pronouncement on arrival that it reminded him of Facebook’s own home) got us wondering: in this space that we created with Harvard, what paradigm shifts will be born in the i-lab?
Hi. What will you do here?
