The Gotham Innovation Greenhouse (we call it “GiG”) was registered as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in New York City in the spring of 2013, with a three-part mission

1. Augmented Collaboration: next-generation tools, expertise, and media for creative artists, citizens, and communities to IMAGINE alternative futures for local built environments, worldwide.

2. Deep Social Media: the same, at the scale of New Soft Cities;

3. Future-making: developing new scenarios at the systems level– we make Art, Science Fiction (more art), and then we make it real (design, engineering, advocacy).
