The AE Foundation has organised an afternoon of public debates as part of the Architecture Fringe 2016. The debates will explore the values driving those working in the discipline today. Was it a mistake for the architect to think of their art as a profession? Are the academic’s claims for architecture’s autonomy any better than the desire to liberate the poor and disposed by new activists’ practices? Can we reassert the idea of architecture as a humanistic activity?
