New York Lab, located at First Park, East Houston & 2nd St.

 

The BMW Guggenheim Lab was a mobile laboratory about urban life that began as a co-initiative of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and the BMW Group. From 2011 to 2014, the Lab traveled to New York, Berlin, and Mumbai. Part urban think tank, part community center and public gathering space, the Lab’s goal was the exploration of new ideas, experimentation, and ultimately the creation of forward-thinking visions and projects for city life.

 

 

Radical collaboration solving complex real-word problems

 

The Hasso Plattner School of Design or d.school offers a methodology for innovation that combines creative and analytical approaches, and requires collaboration across disciplines. This process — which has been called design thinking — draws on methods from engineering and design, and combines them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world.
