This session asks whether architecture is necessary? Does it offer the transient appeal of fashion or should it lift the eternal spirits? Is it about high ideals or practical realities? Or does it actually have to be "for" anything at all?
This is one of the debates in mantownhuman's Critical Subjects Summer School which was a week-long opportunity for some of the keenest young design students - from UK and across the world - to engage in a series of intellectual, architectural and urban design challenges facilitated by leading names in the field.
This debate sponsored and held at The Building Centre in London.
