    Contemporary Questions is a discussion series focusing on important issues that divide us today. Each session will allow 3-4 faculty members to address an urgent topic for architectural research and design in relation to their own work and other contemporary examples. Each discussion will begin with a five minute opening presentation with five slides, followed by a moderated discussion and questions from the audience. The topics are structured dialectically around provocative issues in the hope that this will elicit constructive dialogue.
