What do a country's regulations say about the dominant concept of society there? Which safeguards are important to us as a society?

Where does the fine line lie between personal autonomy and negligence? Is there really no more design leeway left for architecture due to the regulations, or is the frequently mentioned “flood of standards” just an excuse used by unimaginative architects? All this and more is to be under discussion at the second edition of Club Architektur.

Jakob Dunkl, querkraft architekten
Irmgard Eder, Head of MA 37— KSB (Kompetenzstelle Brandschutz)
Silja Tillner, architect, Tillner & Willinger ZT GmbH
