While a graduate student at UC Berkeley, architect Sandhya Sood relished connecting with fellow international students over ”lip-smacking” ideas.

What she got at Uncharted, she writes, “was a delectable spread of ideas on the edge, tapped from the fertile environment of Berkeley and the San Francisco Bay Area."

The Berkeley Festival of Ideas was held over the weekend of October 25 and showcased prominent speakers that brought together authors, infovores, makers, activists, architects and artists writes Sood.  

Moreover, she goes on to say, “Uncharted brought forth not only pioneering thinking but also ideas that matter to all of us in today’s complex, interdisciplinary world. Critical ideas that can elevate humanity, build equitable communities and conserve precious resources to make our world a sustainable place to live, play and work in.”
