The ‘nurturing of architecture’ opens the debate to the role of the profession in developing, improving, updating, protecting and caring for the discipline of architecture. Recent debates around an expanding field of architectural expression introduce disciplines such as landscape, fashion, fine arts, dance, theatre, music, philosophy, robotics and artificial intelligence, urban futures and gamification among others to the architecture arena. The emergence of these innovative interdisciplinary approaches is changing the existing landscape of the architectural profession. The nurturing of architecture (as a profession, as an industry and as a pedagogical context) requires support, consensus and collaboration as well as critique and dissensus in order to remain relevant to contemporary challenge. The conference will be a place to reflect on these issues and to share knowledge of current and past radical or alternative models, and to speculate on future forms of architectural education.
