British Sudanese Architectural Designer, Rayan Elnayal shares how she uses the skills she obtained as an architecture student to visualise fictional spaces inspired by her diasporic background & ethnocentric ideas.

She will explore the artistic journey and conceptualisation of her latest project, A Magic Realist Afrabia, as well as discuss relevant themes in her work including: Magic realism, Afrofuturism, the portrayal of western media narratives, identity & ethnic hybridism.

Her thesis project- ‘A magic realist Afrabia’ explored ideas on magic realism and multi-culturalism in Architecture and design.
