From the outset, OJI Life Lab is a place of potential, a learning community equipping students with a playbook for life. The energy is evident at the door. A bright web of filaments overlaps a montage of inspirational images—drawing into the portal. Interactive reception, retail and gallery space bracket the chill space. Built entirely around teens’ input, front and rear lounges are made for meet-ups, study and informal time—it is theirs, for them. The heart of the Lab is a versatile changing volume loosely composed by 6 mobile Modules, each a personal space capable of combining to make ‘rooms’, and reshaping the Lab for session, contemplative or event modes.
