Network of CITYLabs

This is the core work of Utopia. We’re creating a network of urban venture studios for emerging cities and their slums.


Kathmandu SLUMLab

We’re conceptualizing a first SLUMLab space for an urban slum in Kathmandu. The lab will help youth design solutions to better their own communities.

Ulaanbaatar Microcity

We’ve started developing a project with the mayor of Ulaanbaatar and the Ulaanbaatar Development Corporation to convert one of their slum districts into a next generation microcity.
