The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a global project that offered free programs and projects about important urban challenges in cities around the world. Led by international, interdisciplinary Lab Teams—groups of emerging talents in the areas of urbanism, architecture, art, design, science, technology, education, and sustainability—the Lab raised awareness of key urban topics, and continues to inspire an ongoing conversation online and through the projects it developed in cities. Participatory City: 100 Urban Trends from the BMW Guggenheim Lab explores the major themes and ideas that emerged from the Lab during its travels to New York, Berlin, and Mumbai from 2011 to 2013.

In addition to spotlighting these themes, Participatory City showcases the Lab’s architects, graphic designers, and Lab Team members, along with a selection of contributors who helped bring the Lab to life on three continents. The exhibition will be accompanied by public programs exploring architecture, urbanism, and the ways in which people interact with cities and public space.

Participatory City is organized by Maria Nicanor, Curator, BMW Guggenheim Lab and Associate Curator, Architecture and Urbanism, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.

The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a co-initiative of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the BMW Group.
