Overview

Generation Exchange aims to connect young architects with established and experienced architects. Generation Exchange breaks down the barriers between generations of architects. A nurturing profession provides young practitioners with access to experience. Generation Exchange offers a forum for that access. The principles of practice remain more or less constant even if the day to day varies and is ever evolving. Problems, when contextualised by wiser heads, often seem less daunting. Practitioners of all ages deal with amongst other things; challenging clients, cost over runs, construction quality issues, complex regulations, statutory authorities, cash flow, tax, employees, landlords on any typical day at the office.. Generation Exchange provides an opportunity for young architects to converse with senior practitioners on these and other matters.

The night will feature:

  • A panel discussion with all mentors, moderated by the MC
  • Small group round table discussion with a panelist. Bring your work and professional problems - our mentors might have a solution!
  • Food, drinks and great people
