Utopia is opening a series of urban design studios to create a new paradigm for slums in this century.
Utopia is laying the groundwork to open an interconnected network of urban design firms across the globe to thoughtfully rethink our slums and their cities. And then produce and scale the solutions. We aim to emerge global patterns on the global slum issue.
San Francisco Mothership
The Mothership was established in San Francisco, a city full of designers and technologists and dreamers. The Mothership provides strategic alignment and platform services to the global network of studios.
Utopia Studio Ulaanbaatar
The first studio has launched in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. 60% of the population lives in the informal ger districts of the city.
Utopia Studio Kathmandu
The second studio has launched in Kathmandu, Nepal. Tapping into the local youth energy and budding innovation movement, the Kathmandu Studio is incubating social enterprise startups that generate Slums 2.0 solutions for slumdwellers.
