Described as a “think tank, community center, and public gathering space”, the BMW Guggenheim Lab traveled to New York, Berlin or Mumbai to inspire innovative ideas about urban life through free public programs and research initiatives that engaged thousands of participants.

“With the BMW Guggenheim Lab, we have extended our mission beyond the walls of the museum, providing the Guggenheim with new ways to engage directly with the public and demonstrate our commitment to innovation in the fields of architecture and urbanism,” said Richard Armstrong, director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation.

“The Lab ignited an important conversation about the differences and commonalities of urban environments and the power of cities as idea-makers. The Participatory City exhibition brings together the ideas found along the way, celebrating this journey and showcasing the extraordinary people and places we encountered,” he added.

The BMW Guggenheim Lab will be presented from October 11, 2013 to January 5, 2014. More info about public programs is available in the press release below.
