‘The Future for Architects’ discussion at Design Museum, 3 March

What is the architect’s role in the 21st century? Two leading thinkers, Alastair Parvin and Daniel Susskind, will explore how the profession must change at the LSA’s next Show & Tell.

Daniel Susskind’s talk will explain how, in an internet society, ‘increasingly capable systems’ will undermine professional monopolies and change the way that specialist knowledge is made available. While Alastair Parvin will report from the frontline of that digital revolution, discussing 00’s work advancing open source design and production, and speculating upon what the economy might look like both for design professionals and also for citizens.

Both speakers will illustrate urgent new models for practice in the 21st century, which will be debated after their presentations in a panel discussion with Farshid Moussavi and Will Hunter.
