Peak Lab

So now we know that it's possible to drop a huge raft onto the top of the rainforest and camp there (SolVin Bretzel). And it's also possible to airlift a cabin onto the top of a ski slope and spend the night there (SkiHaus). Now we discover that people are dreaming up research labs that you can hook onto the sides of mountains.

The Peak Lab is a concept designed by architecture students of Richard Horden at TU Munich and others at HTA Lucerne. The design is intended to be an ultra-lightweight microlab that can be dropped into place by helicopter. So far, sadly, the Peak Lab exists only in models. But who knows what it might become? A holiday home for adrenalin junkies?
