Cool Hunting Video Presents: Genspace

Brooklyn's community biotech lab, a place for experimentation and learning

In our latest video we explore Genspace, a community biotech lab based in Brooklyn. When most people imagine a research laboratory they usually don’t envision it living in an unassuming building on a major urban thoroughfare, but Genspace—one of the first labs of its kind in the US operating at Biosafety Level One—is a fully functioning lab offering a wide variety of high tech equipment to its members. Ranging from research scientists to designers to visual artists, the crowd at Genspace is eclectic to say the least and has something to offer anyone interested in science. With free range to work on personal projects or participate in classes, Genspace members represent a new facet in the ever growing DIY community.
