Arabia & the Media Lab

This massive building in Arabia is an interesting place. It’s a factory, a shopping mall, a business building, a public library and a university building – all in once. It may look a bit odd from the street side. But the combination of old factory buildings and modern class and steel architecture is an inspiring mixture. But be warned: There’s a good chance to get lost inside the various little corridors and up to 9 floors.

That’s the Mlab’s (Media Lab) lobby and a class room.

Looks like a nice evening, right? Well, not really evening: it’s just 4pm. Anyway, this is the place there I’m living right now.

Night(life) in Arabia

Night temperatures below zero degrees and rain during the day do have one advantage: They create nice ice structures like the one above. All images are shot in the arabia area, near my university campus.
