The BMW Guggenheim Lab.
New ways of thinking about contemporary urban life.
What is the BMW Guggenheim Lab?
The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a mobile laboratory that will be travelling to major cities worldwide in the coming years. Comprising young, international teams from the areas of urbanism, architecture, art, design, science, technology and sustainability, the BMW Guggenheim Lab addresses issues of contemporary urban life through projects, experiments and public discourse. Its goal is the exploration of new ideas, experimentation and, ultimately, the creation of forward-thinking solutions for urban life.
Part urban think tank, part interdisciplinary gathering space, the BMW Guggenheim Lab is conceived to engage public discourse in cities around the world and through the BMW Guggenheim Lab website and online social networks.
