Itís dedication day for Harvardís 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 ĎHi,í in the spirit of the i-labís signature logo, which Shepley created†as part of†the innovation labís brand?
Even before todayís events, i-lab director Gordon Jones has brought in speakers from PayPal and IDEO among the series of innovation rock starsÖ and the i-lab hasnít 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?
