The speakers include Oliver Wainwright (The Guardian), Mark Brearley (Cass Cities), Bob and Roberta Smith (artist), Kate McTiernan (Shuffle), Crispin Kelly (Baylight Properties), David Knight (DK-CM), Claire Bennie (architect and housing developer), Carolyn Steel (author of Hungry City), Anna Minton (author of Ground Control) & Alex Ely (Mae Architects).
