The Decision to Have the Lab in Mumbai

"So far we've brought the project to three different cities around the world. We've tried to do it in three different continents. We did the BMW Guggenheim Lab in New York and Berlin, so it made sense to do Asia after that. Bombay or Mumbai is one of the most dense cities in the world. It's changing and growing rapidly, and while it's comparable to other major cities, it's expanding at a much larger scale and at a much faster pace. It's a good place to be if you want to imagine what cities are going to be like in the future."
