Description

Join us for our kick off Vibrant Cities Salon presented by Jonathan Hursh and Radha Mistry from Utopia in San Francisco as they talk about their mission to turn city slums into microcities, globally.

About Utopia:

We're a team of designers, urbanists, technologists, behavioral scientists, entrepreneurs, futurists and lots of zero gravity thinkers on slums and cities.

Founded after a decade of experience working in slums, Utopia is the world's first ever design and urban planning firm focused solely on slums, which will soon be home to one third of humanity.

We got our feet wet in slums in Asia years ago and over time, we realized that design could bring a new perspective to this old issue of slums. Slums are an issue that seems to have gotten stuck even as so much in life has improved around it over this past half century. We moved from Asia into San Francisco to set up what would eventually come to be known as Utopia.


This salon is a two hour luncheon caped at 25 people and is free and open to the public with a Eventibrite RSVP. Lunch will be served.
