Mindlabs: Where Minds, Media and Technologies Meet

In the former railyard of Tilburg, right next to the LocHal, Ector Hoogstad Architects transformed the impressive Hal-70 into the beating heart of Mindlabs, an exiting joint venture of various education institutes and business. Mindlabs focuses on different aspects of Artificial Intelligence, such as virtual reality, robotics and language technologies. In various labs, visitors, students and researchers explore these new concepts together. The main structure of Hal-70 determines the rhythm and language of the new architecture: a highly sustainable and flexible new wing with large open and high floors. The orange color of the existing mobile cranes is used as a theme throughout the interior of the building.
