Video of the day: Atelier Bow Wow and BMW/Guggenheim Lab Throw an Archi-Party

Samuel Medina posted a review of an archi-party held by BMW/Guggenheim in Architizer. The BMW Guggenheim Lab is a mobile laboratory that travels to nine cities over the next few years. This lab launches an archi-party, namely a party "for architects, by architects".
Atelier Bow-Wow was chosen to designe the first temporary structure for the BMW Guggenheim Lab. This will act as a public forum, that accommodates about 100 public events including film screenings, lectures, and other activies through mid-October. According to Samuel Medina, this migrating structure, that is to say a tent, is made of a carbon fiber frame clad in layers of fiber mesh fabric. The video below shows the principal steps of the construction.




Architizer posted a series of pictures of this Archi-Party that accompanies and illustrates Samuel Medina's review. I warmly suggest to visit Architizer to have a look at these pictures.
