Debate Series 2012

Main image

In 2012, Building Futures will continue to host its popular series of public debates to stimulate provocative discussion around a series of contemporary and futures oriented issues. In 2011, we explored the quantitative value of design, the legacy of the London Olympics, whether or not the architectural profession has been let down by its press and the threat to the profession from large contractor organisations.

The series is a lively and informal way of reaching out to new and diverse audiences and a great opportunity to guage opinion and generate feedback on a range of issues that matter not just to architects, but to the wider public. Simply email us to reserve your place, turn up, enjoy refreshments, lend us your ears and your voices and at the end of the debate vote to back or oppose the house!

Follow us on twitter for regular updates and email us at to tell us what you think “This house believes…”.

Building Futures welcomes enquiries for sponsors, media partners and joint ventures.
