Ok, so this is something I've thought a lot about, because of course I would.

There's one big factor that separates Utroms from humans in technological advancement is the great running gag that they don't have hands. Or much for vertical mobility.

My best guess is that Utroms didn't leave their planet and started finding other species. They were visited first. And those benevolent aliens decided it was a good idea to gift the cute little mobility challenged orbs technology beyond their wildest dreams. And then were shocked when they ran wild with it, making their own technology suited to what little they could do themselves.

Utrom architecture is another matter entirely; I kinda doubt it would look like what humans have, and would be more inspired by their ancient living. Which I would guess to be tunnels and caves
