PLP Labs is a design research collaborative operating at the intersection of technology, culture and space.  We investigate possibilities and define solutions for tomorrow’s cities. We collaborate with leading experts from around the world and across a wide spectrum of disciplines to offer an expanded range of knowledge-based services. This cross-pollination allows the Labs to address new urban, human and digital frontiers. We aim to make cities more inclusive by increasing the number of voices participating in their change.


Our research is far-ranging, from design and technology to anthropology and social sciences. We dig deeper into the pressing issues affecting our societies and planet.

Our habits, cultures and simple needs have evolved. Our built environments need to catch up.


Technology is fast. Buildings are slow. We are changing this - creating and advocating radical change to our cities and the systems that build them.

PLP Labs is all about collaboration. We strive to work with the best people, on ideas that matter.


Do you have a great idea? A concept that needs to be seen by the world? Or a problem with no obvious answer?


Get in contact with us. No idea is too big, too small or too out-of-the-box.
