urban reflections

About this site

This site is an accompaniment to my other blog: Dubaization Both deal with urbanism, although in "dubaization" my focus is on the Middle East. In this blog the emphasis is more global and discusses issues that are of relevance to a wider audience. Also see my photography blog: YXE-Image

ON AND OF THE CITY

Guggenheim Museum-NYC
Exhibition Entry. 2013.
 
Participatory City: 100 Urban Trends from the BMW Guggenheim Lab. Oct. 11-January 5, 2014. Organizer: Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, NYC
 
The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a global project that offered free programs and projects about important urban challenges in cities around the world. Led by international, interdisciplinary Lab Teams — groups of emerging talents in the areas of urbanism, architecture, art, design, science, technology, education, and sustainability — the Lab raised awareness of key urban topics, and continues to inspire an ongoing conversation online and through the projects it developed in cities.
 
The show, which runs from October 11 to January 5, explores the major themes and ideas that emerged from the Lab during its travels to New York, Berlin, and Mumbai from 2011 to 2013.
 
A video of one of my projects “Mapping Dubai” will be included and is also shown on the BMW Guggenheim Lab’s Youtube Channel:
