We are a Fabrication Laboratory that promotes a culture of Education, Design and Innovation by Turning Thinking Into Doing within Cities.
VIVA Lab is one of the 2,000 digital fabrication laboratories in the Fab Lab's worldwide network that aims to democratize access to personal and collaborative invention, using digital technologies to make (almost) anything.
A space open to the public with manual & digital tools, so that you can develop and materialize your ideas! Here we combine our pedagogical experience and product development, with technological tools of the 21st century and the Maker culture.
In this creative space of excellence we have the opportunity to surprise ourselves, collaborate with unlikely partners, take risks and try new things. This environment of freedom helps to change ways of thinking, to visualize ideas and to put them into practice.
