Public Space Should Lead Architecture

Lecture by Tony Fretton & Liza Fior Debate. “This house believes the needs of public space should lead urban interventions”. Historically the architects design role springs from the clients Statement of Need/Brief. This may or may not engage with public space/contextual issues. The relation between building and context both interior and exterior is however at the very core of architecture. On the other hand, many very successful historic contexts have been created without the intervention of architects. Furthermore architectural intervention in the past has not always been successful. Are architects the best people to work with public space? Should the interventions of architects lead public space design or should the needs of public space lead architects, their clients and the design of buildings?
