BAK presents model conversion regulations as a contribution to the sustainable development of cities and municipalities
On May 19, 2023, the German Federal Chamber of Architects (BAK) presented a concrete proposal for a new model building code to Federal Minister of Construction Klara Geywitz during the opening weekend of the Venice Architecture Biennale. The proposal shows how the building codes of the federal states need to be adapted in order to promote the preservation of existing buildings in the sense of sustainable use of natural and existing resources. Furthermore, redensification in existing buildings and neighborhoods is to be facilitated and, in this context, a strong focus is to be placed on green infrastructure. The aim is to achieve a compact urban and settlement structure with high-quality open spaces while preserving as much building fabric as possible.
