Now in its fourth year, the Royal Institute of British Architects' annual Research Symposium has become an important fixture in the architectural community's calendar.
Following the success of 2008's symposium on space standards, this year's event turns its attention to the subject of the profession itself, at a time when architects have had to look at and question the ways in which they operate.
Titled Changing Practices, the Symposium will provide a context for those discussions, presenting the challenges and opportunities for architectural practice; it will explore how practice evolved in the past, operates in the present, and might change in the future.
The Symposium will be organised in four sessions: the Evolution of Practice, the Organisation of Practice, the Politics of Practice, and the Future of Practice.
