Arch+ Legislating Architecture
Legislating Architecture, a collaboration of ARCH+ with Arno Brandlhuber and Tobias Hönig,
investigates how law creates design, as well as the inverse: can design be applied to the
pre-architectural realm? A report from architecture’s legislative front.

ARCH+ 224 is dedicated to the legislation of architectural-, spatial- and urban planning, respectively its direct
and indirect effect on the built. Therefore the issue adresses an unmissable topic for architecture as a discipline.
Its less the mere demonstration of rules and their consequences, the authors are interested in than exploring
the limits and possibilities of this system; and in a next step, actively participating in their formulation and
interpretation. The question of how this thinking can be part of the practice, is pursued by both speculative, and
built examples. ARCH + 224 appears at the Architecture Biennale 2016 in Venice, first in a English version, later
this year in a German version.
