Beskrivelseorganizing the special session: REIMAGINING BUREAUCRACY: CHALLENGING THE STRUCTURE AND ARCHITECTURE OF LEGAL FRAMEWORKS
The legal frameworks of architecture are seldomly considered in the initial concept of the architectural idea – let alone discussed in architectural practice and academia. Whether we like it or not, legislations always come beforehand the actual building. Within the last century, legislations in building culture has gone from non-existing to micromanaging everything from indoor climate and levels of natural daylight, energy performance, to the functional aspects of materiality. In the coming years sustainability will become a more central part of legislation, which marks this as the time, where the building industry, professionals and researchers across boarders must discuss, what knowledge we can draw from to secure a safe transition into a sustainable building culture. And the time to be vigilant in addressing the question whether the increasing focus upon legislations in fact provide the framework for a sustainable building culture?
This special session calls for research and discussions to bring forth what knowledge can be utilized from the last decades of increasing legislative requirements? Which aspects of the legal framework works well and which do not, in regards to achieving productive architecture as a whole? Can the legal framework be hacked for better or worse, and how do we implement new requirements of sustainability, without making unforeseen legislative pit falls, that may cause more damage instead of insuring a safe common future?
