Harriss, Harriet, 2016, Conference or Workshop, Panel speaker at The Bedford Tapes: Recording the Emerging Generation, London, UK, 5 Dec 2016.

Abstract or Description:

In the midst of ongoing growth, change, doubt, elation, frustration and exaggerated self-worth, all of which are characteristic of the architect’s life, a group of young practitioners from around Europe will come together to share their work and readings of Europe’s shifting paradigms. Accustomed to live in a lifecycle littered by crises, a bench of new protagonists has moved away from the traditional boundary of the practice to self-initiate projects rather than being dependant of the market demand. Led by a strong culture of independence, these offices exploit a void being left by the increasing commodification of the architecture. Driven by an unprecedented need for action, initiatives are fed by everyday concerns to built forms of resistance including temporary structures, opportunistic occupation and the involvement of participants in the project process. From Bedford Square to London and beyond, a concordance of beliefs and hopes shape new attitudes toward the discipline. This is a sign of the need to build alternative commitments to society, clients and territories through architecture.
