The Conference Day - Tuesday 13 November 2018

For many small practices, planning, procurement and economic viability are barriers to creativity. This increasingly complex bureaucracy now takes up the majority of an architect’s time and is fundamental to the success of a project - but it is still seen as secondary to design. Instead of constraints, could these processes be seen as opportunities for architectural creativity in their own right?

Expanding Practice: Navigating the architecture of planning, procurement and property will help small practices learn how to navigate the system. It will explore the hidden iceberg of regulations, rules and forces that define the everyday realities of practice. It will demystify the planning process, turn the tables on public procurement, and shine a light on the dark art of viability. The conference will equip small practices with the insights, tools and tactics to engage with the system earlier upstream and see constraints as an opportunity to creatively expand their practice.
