Guided tour in dialogue with Alexander Hagner, architect gaupenraub +/- and Katharina Ritter, curator Az W

The exhibition ‘Form Follows Rule’ brings the regulations to the fore, regulations which are themselves rarely featured in an architecture museum, directing attention critically but also unavoidably humorously to the legal subtext of architecture and urban development. Case studies, explanations of terminology, historical and international comparisons show how strongly legislative compendia and reams of standardised norms have a significant impact on the design process.
