Summary note:
Berlin-based architect Arno Brandlhuber explores the Swiss building code, the ?most important book of all for architects?, specifically the relationship between building regulations and architecture. How do certain laws determine architectural possibilities? How can architects, in turn, shape those laws? Accompanying an exhibition at the ETH Zürich, this book serves as a fragmentary reference book. It retraces the chronology of referendums held in Zürich on architectural issues, shedding light on controversial nationwide referendums as well. Different strategies of bringing influence to bear on the referendums emerge; recurrent conventionalized graphic techniques used on referendum posters, artistically expressed political statements and even protests in the real space of the city go to show there isn?t only a politics of architecture, but also an architecture of politics. 0Exhibition: ETH Zürich, Switzerland (03.03. - 08.04.2016).
