about BELT studio

BELT studio is the design, planning and research arm of KTK-BELT project, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit based in New York and Nepal. Through this collaborative, our aim is to understand and engage in the complex socio-economic and spatial transformations of the rural south. Working directly with marginalised communities of the rural south, we develop site-specific built strategies using participatory mapping, planning and design techniques.
