    Testing, Testing!

    What effect does the city have on your brain and body? In a series of weekly tours developed with Lab Team member Charles Montgomery, Dr. Colin Ellard, author of You Are Here: Why We Can Find Our Way to the Moon, but Get Lost in the Mall, has begun to gather evidence about the psychological effects of public spaces near the Lab. This week, join Dr. Ellard on this tour and measure the effects of the city on your own brain and body.

    Studio Talk: Comfort Meets Infrastructure

    Join us for a live taping of a conversation between New York University’s Poiesis Fellows and BMW Guggenheim Lab Team members Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman of the Rotterdam-based architecture studio ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] as they discuss how urban life is connected to the infrastructures that support it—from sewers and roads to Internet search engines and passports. Panelists include New York–based filmmaker Cassim Shepard, Chinese architect Haiyan Huang, and editor in chief of Time Out India Naresh Fernandes. Be part of our studio audience, participate in a Q&A, and debate the panelists.
