The BMW Guggenheim Lab currently sits within First Park, a New York City Parks property on Houston at 2nd Avenue, where it will live until October 16. But what is to become of this previously rodent-inhabited site once the Lab continues its travels to Berlin and Mumbai? Will it become a park? Home to a condo? A prison or a supermarket? Join Lab Team members Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman of ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] in part 1 of this idea extravaganza, co-organized with Alejandro de Castro from Columbia University’s Latin Lab, to discuss, speculate, and provoke ideas about what’s next for First Park. Parts 2 and 3 of What’s Next? will follow in September and October.

Cities exist to bring people together, but cities can also keep people apart. From “no loitering” signs to racial steering to beach badges, our cities are full of devices meant to disperse and divide citizens along race, class, and age lines.
Join Interboro Partners and friends Damon Rich, Andrew Kahrl, Kaja Kuhl, Amy Lavine, Berryl Sattyr, Meredith Tenhoor, and others for a discussion about how architecture can be used to include and exclude.
