About Citylabs

The City Lab is a year long initiative to further our understanding of Indian cities. As part of the initiative, workshops and publications are planned on the themes of Writing Urban Histories, Dystopia and Utopian Imaginations, Urban Mapping and Representation and Reimagining Urban Infrastructures. City Labs wish to create a body of work that is publicly accessible and can be used to bring about gradual change in the way we perceive and imagine our cities
