Principle course moderator:

intuyLab, is an urban laboratory, founded in 2014 and based in Lima, Peru, that is interested in exploring and improving cities by converting them into more inclusive and human oriented environments. We are a group of professionals that decided to rethink the way in which we were trained to face the challenges posed by cities and citizens of the 21st century. Our goal is to evidence and generate debate about urban issues along different actors of the city such as students, the civil society and policy makers, always interested in connecting academia with real projects and society needs. Through workshops on national and international scale, combined with interventions in public space we connect academia and civil society and public institutions on an exploratory level to finally open up different ways to see and understand the city in a more empathic, close and human way.
