who we are

“ …. we maintain that the brain is an instrument of ACTION, and not of representation” - henri bergson

founded in 2004, c i t y l a b s t u d i o works in a collaborative environment - with offices & studios in cities across the globe to design development projects. Our clients and work types range from prototyping urban design to architecture projects, interior lifestyle to branding concepts, media-art installations to electronic interface....  at times, meandering between physical + electronic environments

our vision

c i t y l a b s t u d i o is inspired by CITIES* of the world; its natural growth towards hyper-density + complexity, its conflicts + harmony with the NATURAL systems,  contemporary-ART scene, FLUX of demographic + economic demands..... etc. With these real issues & conditions in mind, we constantly pursue possibilities within client's aspirations to achieve the balanced solution; architecturally these concerns would promote arrays of NEW spatial typologies or hybrid conditions, that would further extend the environments and landscapes we live work + play in

the most important goals for a project should always be the starting point for a design investigation. The architectural design movements discussed – hybridized or separate – all relate to creating a more intelligent built world. A purposeful architecture should integrate a flexibility of program, an accommodation of the environment, and a contextualization within the urban fabric. Buildings should be relatable to the average inhabitant, be cohesive with ideas, and be inherently performative 

with our clients, we seek to achieve active + RAPID interactions, strategic + progressive planning, strong + effective forecasts to enable OPTIMUM fuse of DESIGN, client's business case & market conditions
