Behind-The-Scenes At Westbeth, Site Of Former Bell Laboratories Complex
Considered one of the world’s most important research centers for nearly 100 years, Bell Laboratories was responsible for many technological breakthroughs including the first talking movie, the condenser microphone, the first TV broadcast, and the first binary computer were demonstrated.
When the laboratory closed, it underwent a massive restoration & renovation project to become one of the first industrial buildings adaptively reused for artistic and residential use in the United States.
