What They've Learned from the Previous Labs in New York and Berlin

"In every city that we complete the lab in, we have learned more about our own project, and that's the reason our projects are constantly evolving. One thing we learn from each previous city is how we can get more specific and more practical, both for the labs and in our approach to urbanity worldwide. For that reason, we are doing research and design projects specific to Mumbai. The other thing I have been thinking about for quite awhile is what would it mean if the lab wasn't only in one place. Mumbai is the perfect location to test this out, in terms of the various locations around the city. We'll see if it will be a helpful setup for the lab in the future."
