Guggenheim teams with BMW to create international mobile exhibit

BMWThe BMW Guggenheim Lab is an initiative of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation in conjunction with the BMW Group. The 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.

Over the Lab’s six-year migration, there will be three distinct mobile structures and thematic cycles. Each structure will be designed by a different architect, and each will travel to three cities around the globe. The theme of the Lab’s first two-year cycle is Confronting Comfort.


The first BMW Guggenheim Lab was designed by Tokyo-based architects Atelier Bow Wow. NUSSLI was part of the designdevelopment team and led the project through fabrication and the successful installation and (eventual) dismantle of the Lab in New York following its ten-week run. The Lab is a carbon fiber temporary structure, referred to by the architects as a “mobile toolbox” because of its versatile theatrical capability and its ability to house a wide variety of programs ranging from lectures and workshops, to screenings and events.
