Discussion – Die Neuen Auftraggeber: Neue Bauherrschaften - Öffentliche Architektur im Bürger*innenauftrag

“Architecture is the ordering of social relations through built structures,” maintains the philosopher Christian Posthofen. Architecture is thus a societal battlefield, too: who owns and uses what is built? Who plans it, who needs it—and what for? Behind compulsory purchase orders and rent caps, building groups and funding programs, lies the question of how socially minded these buildings truly are, who benefits from them and who does not, and what relationships architecture creates between people and their environment.

Discourse with: Ilka Ruby (publisher and curator, Ruby Press), Christoph Schäfer (Planbude), Alexander Koch (Director Neue Auftraggeber), Anh-Linh Ngo (Editor-in-chief ARCH+), and others.
