about

UNFOLD PLANE is an interdisciplinary architecture practice based in Los Angeles and Chicago that unfolds the two dimensional working plane to a multidimensional spatial canvas, in order to reveal the concealed relationships between matters, which cultivates the synthesis of convention and forthcoming in architecture, art, culture and technology. It’s an architecture shop founded by Zhoufan Chen and Shundi Zhan, in order to incubate the interdisciplinary relationship between conventional and contemporary notion by unfolding the "plane", "perspective" and "perception" between convention and forthcoming in concept-wise, material-wise, technology-wise and culture-wise.
