Turncoats* #3: We Got This
The technocrats have triumphed! More than ever, cities are shaped by an expanding army of specialists who, confounded by an onslaught of economic, demographic and environmental pressures, robotically approach city making with a kit of technical solutions. When was the last time you were inspired to linger in one of these formulaic places? What happened to the vision? It’s time to put the responsibility for city making back in the hands of the original generalists: the architects!

* Turncoats is a shot in the arm. Framed by theatrically provocative opening gambits, a series of debates will rugby tackle fundamental issues facing contemporary practice with a playful and combative format designed to foment open and critical discussion, turning conventional consensus on its head.
