Hybrid Lab Marchstraße 8 10587 Berlin

The Hybrid Lab is work, event and experimentation space. It is where the Hybrid Plattform brings together various project partners, academics and scientists, artists and designers of UdK Berlin and TU Berlin. It is the place to attend our Hybrid Talks, where people from the campus as well as external guests and the public at large can gather to give and listen to fascinating lectures and discussions.

As a neutral “third location” on the Campus Charlottenburg, the Hybrid Lab offers the possibility for an exchange across universities and disciplines. The Hybrid Lab is perfect for temporary, flexible and project-based use. Associated project groups and the Hybrid Plattform partners may use the lab, as well as professors, students and researchers of either university. The only prerequisite is that you use it for collaborations between the arts and sciences and experimentation in inter-/transdisciplinary research.

Our Hybrid Lab is located in the Villa Bell, the only surviving building of the Villa Quarter on the former Sophienstraße. In 1950, the Sophienstraße was renamed Bellstraße after the American inventor — also eponym of the Villa — and joined to the TU Berlin campus in 1963. The Villa Bell’s central location on the Campus Charlottenburg offers the Hybrid Plattform ideal conditions for various event formats as well as a suitable retreat for work and exchange in cross-disciplinary groups.

About the Hybrid Plattform

The Hybrid Plattform is a cross-disciplinary project platform on the Campus Charlottenburg. In this pilot project from the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK) and the Technische Universität Berlin (TU Berlin), artists, scientists and experts collaborate beyond their individual disciplines and universities, investigating future-oriented topics and issues. The results are unique projects, new networks, further platforms and innovative approaches for teaching and research.
