Does Architecture Need Mavericks?

Beginning with an introduction by Owen Hopkins, curator of Mavericks: Breaking the Mould of British Architecture, a panel debates the role of mavericks in architecture past and present. What makes an architect a maverick? What uses do mavericks and maverick positions have? How has the meaning of maverick

evolved over history? What, above all, does it mean to be a maverick architect in today’s world of parametric design and building information modelling?

Charles Holland – Director, Ordinary Architecture; co-founder, FAT
Owen Hopkins – Architecture Programme Curator, Royal Academy
Maria Smith – Director and Co-Founder, Interrobang; former director, Studio Weave
Catherine Slessor – writer and critic; former editor, The Architectural Review
