Register for workshops at the Analog Research Lab Pop up in the main foyer

The Facebook Analog Research Lab is a creative space for design and art-making. Its primary goal is to create and direct projects that influence culture and challenge thought. Our mediums of choice favor the analog without neglecting the digital. We ask questions and we build things. Then we ask questions about the things we built. Hopefully somewhere along the way you start asking questions and building things too. It’s this cycle of creation, reflection, education, and provocation that drives our work.

The Analog Research Lab has become accepted as an important component of our culture and company. It was founded through passion and hard work, not corporate initiative. The existence of the lab is a reflection of the freedom afforded to employees of Facebook as well as an example of its hacker spirit.
