On Wednesday 29th June Morris+Company and Freehaus took part in a panel discussion entitled "Action Through Collaboration" as part of the London Festival of Architecture.

The discussion, which was chaired by Nimi Attanayake from nimtim architects explored how to create effective and real collaboration and discussed how to embed collaboration in the heart of a project, looking at the benefits and pit-falls to ensure that collaboration works for all.

Collaboration is increasingly becoming an imperative in the Built Environment. From changes in the London Plan, to shifting client priorities, collaboration between practices of all sizes is becoming integral to winning and executing work. The reality of true collaboration is protecting the future of the industry, to support the growth of emerging architects, help diversify the voices in our field and create a healthy eco-system that benefits the communities we are designing for.

The event space This was the first event we held on the ground floor of our new office, an exciting testament of what's to come.
The City of London School The panel used the co-authorship of The City of London School as a case study, through which to analyse the benefits and difficulties of collaboration.
