The GuggenheimLab is opening tomorrow in Berlin. From the 15th of june till the 29th of july it’s going to provide workshops, talks, inspiration related to urbanism and the future of cities.
The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a mobile laboratory traveling to nine major cities worldwide over six years. Led by international, interdisciplinary teams of emerging talents in the areas of urbanism, architecture, art, design, science, technology, education, and sustainability, the Lab addresses issues of contemporary urban life through programs and public discourse. Its goal is the exploration of new ideas, experimentation, and ultimately the creation of forward-thinking solutions for city life.
First day will be about the introduction of the team and José Gómez-Márquez is going to talk about the very interesting topic of Making Your City.
Following a do-it-yourself philosophy, today’s programs use innovative technology to empower citizens to actively build their cities. Learn about exciting techniques like rapid prototyping, creative construction, and hacking.
Sounds quite interesting. I will join, see you there!
