BMW Guggenheim Lab: Berlin
The BMW Guggenheim Lab, a six-year experiment travelling across nine cities worldwide with the aim of creating forward-thinking solutions for urban life, has opened its second temporary residency in the German city of Berlin.
As part of the lab’s stay in Berlin, a temporary structure designed by Tokyo architecture firm Atelier Bow-Wow will host a programme of interdisciplinary talks, exhibitions, workshops and film screenings exploring urban life, to give residents a space to discuss their visions for the city. The lab will also kick-start a series of small-scale interventions in collaboration with Berlin-based urban initiatives exploring topics including water quality, quantified healthcare and urban planning.
The collaboration between New York’s Guggenheim art museum and German automaker BMW runs until July 29 2012 in Berlin, before moving to Mumbai in late 2012. Check out the Stylus report from the first BMW Guggenheim Lab: New York.
