The BMW Guggenheim Lab has today published 100 Urban Trends: A Glossary of Ideas from the BMW Guggenheim Lab New York and 100 Urban Trends: A Glossary of Ideas from the BMW Guggenheim Lab Mumbai.
Complementing the Berlin Lab trends, the New York and Mumbai editions round out a series of glossaries showcasing the most talked-about urban trends from the Lab's three global stops to date, and create a new resource for understanding the way people relate to and live in cities.
All three glossaries, which have been written by Lab curator Maria Nicanor, curatorial assistants Amara Antilla and Stephanie Kwai, and the Lab's resident writer, Christine McLaren, can be accessed online in a dynamic interactive feature designed by Collective Assembly. The glossaries, designed by graphic designers Sulki & Min, are also available on the BMW Guggenheim Lab website.
"These glossaries are meant to further the conversations started by the Lab and spark analyses of these three cities and comparisons of the respective urban environments," stated Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation. "Integral to these glossaries is the concept of cities as hubs for ideas, and how the Lab has captured some of the prevailing thoughts citizens and experts alike have about their cities."
