“The Battle of Ideas should be the key event in the calender for anyone serious about being taken seriously. Its a great forum for testing ideas, defending ideas and questioning ideas. But most importantly, it’s a place that celebrates ideas. We are honoured to be involved.”
Austin Williams, founder, ManTowNHuman (Manifesto: Towards a New Humanism), the first radical architectural manifesto for a generation
"Participating in the Battle was a little like entering a Bombay train at rush hour - it's a plunge into a swirl of wildly differing notions of how people should arrange themselves in a really tight situation. When you eventually emerge, you find that you're in a different place from where you started - and that you've been thoroughly energised from the journey. I can't wait to take the trip again next year."
