Savas Dimopoulos gave a talk recently at Perimeter where he proposed building an institute to bring many small-scale, beyond-the-standard-model experiments under one roof. The claim is that experiments testing fundamental physics (new particles, forces, dimensions, etc.) would benefit from being near each other and related theorists than they would from being grouped with experiments using similar techniques but not probing fundamental physics (as they often are now). He starts the talk with some discussion of axions, the LHC, and some recent small-scale experiments. His proposal (“Super-lab”) begins at 1:05:37.
