Discover Mediamatic's premises on a Tour. We will walk past our different labs and introduce you to the current projects and experiments that are happening here. You will get to peek inside the CleanLab, where we research into developing new biomaterials such as mycelium, the root system of mushrooms. We will take you to the Aroma Lab, our open perfume workshop and scent library, where we explore the medium of smell. We will show you around in the Plant Lab, in which we research sustainable city farming and grow herbs and edible flowers for our restaurant. 

During the walk around the Biotoop, we will also tell more about Mediamatics sensorial exhibitions and growing art installations that you find on both the outside and inside of our building. Just come!
