Mumbai Lab Architecture

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 has 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 is constructed primarily of bamboo and evokes a light, open and transparent quality. For the New York and Berlin Labs, Atelier Bow-Wow created a lightweight and compact design described as a “traveling toolbox,” with a structural skeleton built of carbon fiber.
