ARCH+ Association


Mission Statement

Since 1968 ARCH+ has stood for independent and critical architectural and urban discourse. This discursive continuity lends credibility and salience to our research and practice. In upholding this tradition of examining the relevance of spatial production for contemporary culture and society, ARCH+ Verein zur Förderung des Architektur- und Stadtdiskurses (ARCH+ Association for the Promotion of Architectural and Urban Discourse) was founded as a nonprofit charitable association in Berlin on January 23, 2014.


1. To foster critical and independent discourse in the tradition of ARCH+.
2. To establish a broad basis that supports socially relevant discourse.
3. To advance architectural education beyond the print medium.
4. To give German discourse an international platform through translations into English and the use of digital media.
