a question of practice

formally known as Talking Crap...

Sessions devoted to fostering conversations around constructive change

in the practice and culture of architecture.

a question of practice  is…

a free space where the conversation is shaped by the minds in the room,

talking (crap) about the problems and opportunities in architectural practice.

with a goal to foster constructive change in the practice and culture of architecture.

starting with a question as the seed for the conversation

Asking questions helps us organise our thinking and understanding of what we don’t know. A question well asked will stimulate examination, consideration and critical thinking. Good questions provoke more questions, distilling thinking, driving and informing change. Positive change is the objective in all this. Of course, questioning might also end up re-affirming a current position or state. Such confirmation isn’t possible, however, without starting the process of questioning.
