Berlin welcomes The BMW Guggenheim Lab

The BMW Guggenheim Lab has made its next destination, stopping in Berlin from today (15 June) until 29 July 2012. The interactive think tank encourages the visiting public to engage with their urban realm and discuss issues of urban life. This temporary public space is supported by an online forum to continue this examination after the Lab has moved onto its next destination.

Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation, said: “We are delighted to open the BMW Guggenheim Lab Berlin and begin a vibrant period of public discussion and debate about how citizens can shape the cities in which they live. We look forward to welcoming residents from throughout Berlin as well as visitors from around the world to join us in this groundbreaking urban experiement.”

The Lab can currently be found at Prenzlauer Berg at Schonhauser Allee 176 in the Pfefferberg Complex, a converted 19th-century brewery.
