There’s broad agreement that we need to build with more care and attention, but no clarity about how architects can be given the resources to do this. With more focus, post-Grenfell and PFI disasters, on public responsibility, the event will look at how architects’ professional skills might be more appreciated, and assess various theoretical models, from rebalancing cost and quality to the innovative Preston Model, where Local Authorities pursue the social value in local procurement.
