Inspired by powerful Buddhist principles, the Rubin Museum’s Mandala Lab in London’s Canary Wharf will be an interactive space designed to explore challenging emotions and consider how to transform them into wisdom.

The Mandala Lab, a freestanding structure designed by Madrid-based architectural firm Extudio, and design and production office Enorme Studio, will offer city dwellers a chance to unwind and immerse in five multi-sensory experiences. From video and scent to curated percussion instruments, the storytelling journey inside Mandala Lab will focus on self awareness and awareness of others. Open from 16 September to 25 November 2023. Daily opening times are 12:00 – 18:00, with late opening until 20:00 on Thursdays.
