A presentation by Robin Nicholson, senior partner at Cullinan Studio and Simon Foxell, principal of the Architects Practice and author of ‘Starting a Practice: A Plan of Work’
In May 2015 the multi-disciplinary Edge ginger group launched ‘Collaboration for Change’, the report from the Edge Commission on the Future of Professionalism, chaired by Paul Morrell, the first Chief Construction Adviser to Government.
The Commission concluded that the pressures for change that the professions face are real and profound but with an equally powerful conviction that there is an opportunity to find a new position for themselves that captures the best of the values of their past, while being relevant to the 21st century challenges we face.
Core Edge members Simon Foxell and Robin Nicholson will report on progress to date and discuss how the North-West might rise to Morrell’s challenges.
