Recently named one of the 50 most powerful women in architecture and design in 2024 by Dezeen, Tosin Oshinowo is a Lagos-based architect renown for her socially responsive approach to commercial, cultural and civic architecture in a rapidly urbanising continent. Her practice expands to curating and writing, which extensively covers afro-modernism and identity, which includes a notable contribution to the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale.

In a MDW keynote presented in partnership with the Robin Boyd Foundation, Oshinowo brings her wealth of experience from her recent success as curator of the Sharjah Architecture Triennial, which investigated architectural innovation in the face of scarcity. Delving into architecture and urbanism in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, she will challenge conventional notions, offering fresh perspectives on design and architecture tailored to meet cultural and climatic needs in the twenty-first century.
