Conference paper responded to the following proposition: Architecture has a long-standing relationship between academia and practice. Teaching has been used by many emergent practices to ferment their design approach and supplement their income in their early years. For some, this symbiosis remains fundamental throughout their careers, providing a space to develop and test approaches outside of commercial pressures. Similarly, research collaborations between academics and practitioners can yield innovations that further the influence of the architecture sector more widely. This talk explores the practice - academia axis and considers how collaborations in this area can give practitioners working in both sectors a cutting edge.
