Wondering what Bell Labs looks like these days?

January 15, 2014

The January 2014 issue of Metropolis has a short “point of view” piece on Bell Labs by Samuel Medina titled “Eero Saarinen’s Bell Labs, Now Devoid of Life.” The article is convincingly backed up by a photo essay by Rob Dobi. The images show Bell Labs in all its gigantic glory as it awaits redevelopment.
