Mumbai Lab Programs
The Mumbai Lab's programs will include design projects, participatory studies, tours, talks, workshops, film screenings, and cultural activities. Creative and hands-on activities will bring the public together with design professionals, city officials, and urban planners to address issues related to transportation, housing, water, and governance. In addition, city tours will explore the psychological effects of public space. Design projects include an open competition to develop solutions for a heavily congested traffic junction in Mumbai and an exploration of ways to refit infrastructure with new public space and pedestrian functions. Please visit the Lab's online calendar for more details on individual programs.
"Our hope for the programming of the BMW Guggenheim Lab Mumbai is to continue to expand participation beyond the traditional museum audience," said Mumbai Lab Curator David van der Leer. "Everyone who lives in a city has a stake in its future, and our programs are designed to bring people of all backgrounds and viewpoints together to address important issues related to urban life."
Mumbai Lab Team
Programs have been developed by the Mumbai Lab Team (Aisha Dasgupta, Neville Mars, Trupti Amritwar Vaitla, and Héctor Zamora), an international, multidisciplinary group of innovators and experts, in coordination with Guggenheim curators David van der Leer and Stephanie Kwai, the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum team, and locally based program consultants Swati Abhijit, Sourav Biswas, Vikram Doctor, Naresh Fernandes, Aaron Pereira, Surabhi Sharma, and Pooja Warier.
Mumbai Lab Architecture
As in New York and Berlin, the physical structure of the Mumbai Lab is in character with its urban environment. Tokyo architects Atelier Bow-Wow, working with Mumbai architect Samir D'Monte, have designed an L-shaped structure made primarily of bamboo that is uniquely suited to the plaza site at the Dr. Bhau Daji Lad Museum and to the densely populated city, as well as a modified version of the Lab that will travel to the satellite sites throughout Mumbai.
All BMW Guggenheim Lab Mumbai programs are free and open to the public during operational hours. Most of the Lab's programs and events will take place in English, and most will be accessible on a first-come, first-served basis; programs to be delivered in Hindi and Marathi will be noted on the Lab's calendar, as will programs with limited space that require an RSVP.
