Malcolm Reading will join Oliver Wainwright and panel to discuss procurement hazards for architects

Next Thursday 22 February at 18.30 sees the third debate in the FUNDAMENTALS The Way We Work lecture series at Central St Martins.

Malcolm Reading will join a panel, chaired by the Guardian’s Oliver Wainwright and including Claire Bennie, Municipal; Russell Curtis RCKa/Project Compass; and Kay Hughes, Khaa, to debate whether procurement is now too bureaucratic, risk-averse and a barrier to the best design.

When architects can’t get onto framework agreements because they haven’t designed a type of building… are they doomed to stay in a perpetual catch-22? And when they get shortlisted for a project, will cost always trump design quality? Hear the panel’s insights into how clients really think, how procurement systems might be more responsive, even flexible.

This is the third in the lecture series which is throwing a spotlight on architecture, examining the way architects work, and the wider implications for the future of cities.
