Architectural debates are rubbish. We've all been there: a panel of similar speakers with similar views taking it in turns to talk at length about their similar work — too polite, too deferential, too dull. At best they're lukewarm love-ins, critically impotent, elitist and stuffy.

#Turncoats frames things differently. Through provocative opening gambits these free debates will clothesline fundamental issues facing contemporary architecture and society with a playful and combative format designed to foment open and critical discussion, turning conventional consensus on its head.

In Edinburgh....we'll be debating whether Scotland really is the worst place in Europe to be a young designer. Should graduates leave for greener pastures, or does Scotland have the infrastructure and opportunities to nurture and support emerging talent?

Agree? Don't Agree? Join us!

Chaired by Dr Stacey Hunter, Design Curator and Director of Local Heroes

Our speakers include —

Richard Murphy OBE, acclaimed architect and Director of Richard Murphy Architects

Karen Mabon — renowned accessories designer with her own internationally recognised independent label

Alec Farmer — founder of Glasgow-based outdoor specialists Trakke

Rūta Turčinavičiūtė, Architectural Assistant at 3DReid and part time GSA student
