Where Is the Lab?
The BMW Guggenheim Lab, a mobile laboratory about urban life, has traveled to major cities worldwide. Launched in New York (August 3–October 16, 2011) with a focus on the theme of Confronting Comfort, the Lab traveled to Berlin (June 15–July 29, 2012), where the programming emphasized active citizen participation in shaping cities. It then opened at multiple sites in Mumbai (December 9, 2012–January 20, 2013), where projects and programs explored perceptions of privacy and public space.
Key experiences and ideas on urbanism that emerged at the Lab in these three locations will be explored inParticipatory City: 100 Urban Trends from the BMW Guggenheim Lab an exhibition at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City (October 11, 2013–January).
