UNFOLD’s talks and conversations bring together architects, scholars, educators, artists and activists who prompt to rethink what architecture is about, including its historical, theoretical, socio-political, cultural, technical, and design meanings.  
UNFOLD seeks to broaden the discussion on what decolonising architecture means in relation to pedagogies, epistemologies, and modes of research and practice, thinking together about the ethics, aesthetics and values of our built environments and the multiple ways they are created and reshaped.
