First in a series of debates held by Geyer
October 31st, 2007
Prompted by a polarising letter to the editor, penned by Max Thomson and published in Indesign Vol.28, Geyer has held its first in a series of debates in Sydney, that will continue to run throughout the year.
In response to Max Thomson’s published statement that claimed projects were “sprouting breakout spaces like some grotesque algal bloom” Geyer invited design professionals to argue for or against the question “Are breakout spaces sprinkled about like fairy dust?”
A knowledgeable and witty group of speakers were chosen to dual it out at the Sydney Mint on a mild May evening. The “For” team was lead by none other than Max Thomson himself – supported by Chris Alcock and Christopher Medland.
The “Against” team consisted of Laurie Aznavoorian who defended Geyer’s opinion vehemently with team mates Glenn O’Rourke and Marg Lennon.
