The Future for Architects?


The Future for Architects? Event

Wednesday 22 June 2011

Building Futures presents a panel debate to discuss its 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?

Chaired by Dickon Robinson, Building Futures.
