Utopia is establishing an urban innovation lab in Rio de Janeiro, the symbolic capital of slums in Latin America. This is the first location to test out our CITYLab platform approach as an urban venture studio for slums and their cities. The favelas are vibrant environments that are intertwined throughout the city, showing us that slums aren't destroying our cities, they're creating something new.
