Built utopia

In this project, a built utopia combines a habitat and its socio-physical designs which, together, are proposed by a person or a group to improve upon a group’s historically experienced circumstances.

Fictional utopia

A fictional utopia is usually imagined by an individual and may be presented in written form (prose, play script, poem), as a painting or some other still image including a design for a settlement, as a film, a musical composition, dance or other movement, etc. A fictional utopia may serve to some extent as a model for real-life utopias, but cannot be replicated completely in real-life conditions.
