We’re very excited about this year’s debate, Reverence vs Reinvention that will be closing the conference, with Graeme Brooker, Catherine Croft and James Dilley.

The panel will debate these and other provocative issues including:

– Should society place greater demands on interior designers as guardians of the buildings (even unlisted ones) they work on?
– How does the responsibility to respect the design intention of the creator of a building impact the creativity of a designer?
– How does the often ephemeral nature of an interior shape the individual identity of a designer and the public identity of the profession?

In preparation for this exciting debate, we want you to tell us your thoughts. Have you ever felt conflicted about changing another designer’s work? Do you prefer to start from scratch? Should we place more value on the work of interior designers?
