Gabriela Ríos Landa

Laboratorio para la Ciudad
Innovation Strategies and Futures Studies Coordinator
She is an innovation strategist with a M.A. in Futures Studies and a B.A. in Industrial Design.
At Laboratorio para la Ciudad* - the experimental arm and creative office of the Mexico City government, reporting to the Mayor - Gabriela supports the implementation of innovation strategies, harnessing the capabilities of government, academia and civil society in order to solve public problems. To do so, she draws on her expertise in ethnography, human-centered design and futures studies. Additionally, she works with the creation of alternative future narratives for the city.

Before joining Laboratorio para la Ciudad, she worked 5 years as an innovation consultant at INSITUM, T-Labs and Ogilvy & Mather, where she helped organizations craft compelling user experiences while remaining responsive to the external conditions shaping the future. During these years, she reinforced her vocation as a generalist, participating in projects that span various research areas (e.g. technology for education and personal devices, mobility, mobile banking).
Above all, Gabriela is passionate about working in interdisciplinary teams in order to envision alternative futures, tackle complex problems and conceive solutions to effect a long-term positive change in people’s lives.

* The Lab is a place to reflect about all things city and to explore other social scripts and urban futures for the largest megalopolis in the western hemisphere, working across diverse areas, such as urban creativity, mobility, governance, civic tech, public space etc. In addition, the Lab searches to create links between civil society and government, constantly shifting shape to accommodate multidisciplinary collaborations, insisting on the importance of political and public imagination in the execution of its experiments.
