The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a mobile laboratory traveling to major cities worldwide. Led by international, interdisciplinary teams of emerging talents in the areas of urbanism, architecture, art, design, science, technology, education, and sustainability, the BMW Guggenheim Lab addresses issues of contemporary urban life through programs and public discourse. Its goal is the exploration of new ideas, experimentation, and ultimately the creation of forward-thinking solutions for urban life.
The current theme of the BMW Guggenheim Lab is Confronting Comfort, exploring notions of individual and collective comfort and the urgent need for environmental and social responsibility. The BMW Guggenheim Lab launched in New York and ran from August 3 to October 16, 2011, before continuing on to Berlin. The Berlin presentation, which ran from June 15 to July 29, 2012, was organized in collaboration with ANCB The Metropolitan Laboratory. The Lab's most recent location was Mumbai, where it operated in collaboration with the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum between December 9, 2012, and January 20, 2013.
Part urban think tank, part community center and public gathering space, the BMW Guggenheim Lab is conceived to engage public discourse in cities around the world and through the BMW Guggenheim Lab website and online social communities.
The public is invited to attend free programs developed by the BMW Guggenheim Lab (BGL) Team in each BMW Guggenheim Lab location. In addition, the BMW Guggenheim Lab website and social communities provide opportunities for participants around the world to engage in the ideas and experiments generated by the BGL Team.E-mail | Follow us:
