  • Duration : 12 months
Buliding a Start-up City

Aligned with the Audacity movement supported by Mistletoe, our goal is to simulate and build a modular start-up city with start-up technologies and explore the potential to expand into a modular start-up community with sustainable materials where individuals can live, work, play and exchange ideas. The city will be a showcase of the potential of decentralised communities using off-grid technologies, sustainable materials, and exploring the concept of self-sustaining community through experimenting with the plug-n-play solutions.

Expected Outcome of Project
  • Build: Sustainable Start-up City

  • Target: Aim for less energy, water material, food and land footprint as compared to modern megacity.

  • Impact: A Living City
Climate Resilient Future City Design

Building resilience will be essential urban policy and a smart investment for cities. We will hypothecate multiple possible city designs scenarios with mock-ups and simulate with science based targets

Resource Efficient City

Green infrastructures are important foundation assets that provide sustainable solutions at a lower cost than traditional infrastructure approaches. We want to change how cities are designed, simply said: start fresh, live in a modular city, and organically evolve community interactions in a sustainable way.

Responsible CityZens

We aim for a sustainable, safer and more responsible world. To deliver on this vision, will invite city stakeholders with strong values for sustainability in everyday actions and actors who place: Planet and People above Profits. We aim to build a conscious map of the start-up city community members through advanced AI and NPL based value mapping and evolve as the community grows.
