Inspiration. Imagination. Discovery.

BELL LABORATORIES AND THE FUTURE.

The famed research center opened in 1962 on 472 acres of land. It was originally designed to be home to more than 6,000 workers, which would include many of the best scientific minds of the era. Prominently featured at the complex was an enormous central building designed by architect Eero Saarinen, also known for the St. Louis Gateway Arch and the TWA Flight Center at JFK International Airport.

 

The Holmdel, New Jersey building became an instant marvel in the architectural world with its vast facade of reflective glass and a nearly quarter-mile long atrium. The center would also prove to be a major research center in the Unites States through the decades, winning “Laboratory of the Year” in 1967. The Holmdel building functioned as a laboratory for 44 years before closing and left abandoned in 2006.
