WHAT IS

?

Unbind is a design education start-up that focuses on creating learning experiences for designers and students. We are a group of design enthusiasts who believe in using design to bring about a positive social change.

Design thinking principles form the core of our organisation, and we believe learning is something that happens the most through interactions of a different kind.

Architectural education has become very predictable and events like these extend the learning outside the four walls. Unbind's hands-on approach and dialogue way of learning becomes very important and they're doing a good job and I hope they organize more such events!

 The whole experience has been so professional and I'm extremely proud of the team! It never once felt like they were a group of youngsters.

This is a great initiative where all forms of art are on display and it helps students choose what path they want to take in future.
