Media Lab Melbourne promotes collaboration between artists, designers, scientists, technologists, couturiers, performers, players, crafters and creatives!

The architected experience is a primary quality of modern life, prevalent in our home, office, transitional and social environments. Media Lab Melbourne seeks to subvert, reinforce, extend, augment or diminish these experiences: inspiring critical action and rhetoric.

Media Lab Melbourne is based in the city of Melbourne, Australia.
