What’s Next? The Legacy of the New York BMW Guggenheim Lab, Part 1
Saturday, August 20, 2011, 2–5 pm
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.
