The architecture of the BMW Guggenheim Lab structure is designed to be responsive to the cities the Lab visits. For the Mumbai Lab, Atelier Bow-Wow of Tokyo, working with Mumbai's SDM Architects, designed a structure uniquely suited to the densely populated environment of Mumbai. Modeled after the Indian mandapa, a raised outdoor pavilion traditionally used for public celebrations and events, the Mumbai Lab structure was constructed primarily of bamboo and evoked a light, open, and transparent quality. This video shows the construction of the Lab at Mahim Beach, one of a network of locations around Mumbai where the Lab presented its programs.
