Debate Series 2011

2011

In 2011, Building Futures will continue to host its popular series of public debates around provocative contemporary and futures oriented issues. In 2010, the series saw collaborations with The Surface Design Show; think-tank Demos; the Apple Store and the Urban Splash. This year we look forward to a host a of new partnerships.

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 BuildingFutures@riba.org to tell us what you think “This house believes…”.

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