On Wednesday June 22nd 2011, at the RIBA Hub, I will be taking part in the RIBA Building Futures Debate discussing their latest publication "The Future for Architects" - a report that explores the future role of architects. The debate will explore the ideas, vision and services of practitioners in the context of a rapidly changing profession, asking - who will design our buildings in 2025; what roles will those trained in architecture be doing then and how will architectural practice have changed as a result?
This is a free event but booking is essential, to reserve your place, email: BuildingFutures@inst.riba.org. For more information click here.
The panel will feature:
Dickon Robinson – Chair, Building Futures
Gavin Elliott – Head of Manchester Studio, BDP
Cristina Cerulli – Studio Polpo
Ben Davies – The Neighbourhood
Professor Tom Jefferies - Head of School, Manchester School of Architecture
Dele Adeyemo - Co-founder and Director, Pidgin Perfect
I will be using the debate as part of my ongoing Masters research into the future of architectural practice.
