Portrait of the New York Lab team

Nearly seven months have passed since the five Lab Team members were pulled together from disparate parts of the world for an initial meeting in New York to collaborate on how to address the theme of Confronting Comfort for the first BMW Guggenheim Lab. Experimentation was the imperative, leading to a deep exploration of visible and invisible systems that exist in our everyday lives, shaping our understanding and levels of comfort. Tasked with developing a spectrum of free public programs at the New York Lab, the team put together ten compelling weeks of experiments, discussions, debates, workshops, panels, tours, and screenings guided by the theme.

How have the New York Lab Team’s initial ideas of comfort and their system’s approach to the topic changed? What kinds of conclusions and lessons have come forth? Join Lab Team members Olatunbosun Obayomi, Omar Freilla, Charles Montgomery, Elma van Boxel, and Kristian Koreman in a final conclusive talk as they share highlights from their time in New York, give their insight on the future of the city and First Park, and impart their thoughts and takeaways from their time here at the New York Lab.
