Citilab is an initiative of the Fundaci. Privada
pel Foment de la Societat del Coneixement
  (Private Foundation for the Promotion of
  the Knowledge Society) the aim of which
    is to promote the new digital culture of
    the knowledge society, bring the latest
 technological innovations within the reach
 of citizens, maintain social cohesion in the
 context of the new digital era and promote
 collective learning activities. It was created
officially on 13th December 2003, driven by
          the Town Council of Cornellà
Citilab is an experimental centre set up
   to actively spread technological culture, a
  pioneering venture for Europe which aims
  to demonstrate just how far the innovative
 and creative juices of citizens will take them
     if they have an adequate set-up at their
disposal. A city laboratory where researchers,
      entrepreneurs, university students and
       companies may interact in a real and
    stimulating environment, experiment and
 work together on joint projects, sharing what
               they know with others.
Cornellà. Itʼs not Manhattan
citilab is not a building
You are citilab
citilab is a common noun
                 Jordi Colobrans
geeks are citizens too
citilab - a post digital fun palace?

  “In 1963, the British architect Cedric Price created the idea of a Fun

  Palace. "Every town should have a space... where the latest

  discoverings (sic) of engineering and science can provide an

  environment for pleasure and discovery," he said. We need Fun Palaces

  for the post-digital era.”


                               Carlo Ratti - architect and director of the SENSEable City Lab at MIT
