About Uréchi

Uréchi Oguguo is a New York City-based, Lagos-born learner, spacemaker, storyteller, designer at 2x4, and artist showcasing their work as @ureunbothered.

Their creative practice explores the intimacy of storytelling through handcrafts and illustration that celebrate and tell tales of rest, care, and tenderness which are often overlooked in discussions of Blackness. Through their works across a variety of design media including digital illustration, textile art, architecture, and technology, they explore themes of nature, personal aspirations, and identity.

Uréchi holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and a Master of Architecture degree from Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation where they were the recipient of the Lucille Smyser Lowenfish Memorial Prize award for the most outstanding student in the final semester design studios. They currently serve as a Board of Director at Ubuntu Education, Inc. whose mission is to decolonize and recalibrate how architecture is being taught, designed, and experienced in order to pave way for more equitable and socially conscious design globally.
