Back issue for magazine - Conditions 050610

Conditions 050610 The three Scandinavian countries are all developing national strategies of architecture politics. Each country has now released an official strategy document. Their common goal is to bring quality to all levels of architecture and planning. However, the national strategy documents give few answers to the most difficult questions: what constitutes quality in architecture, who should define it, and how should it be implemented? The tendency of these political strategies seems to be based on standards and consensus of opinions. There is little interest in initiating debates on the fundamental level. The aim of these documents appears to be to get rid of conflicting views and marginal players by establishing some very static and non-committing definitions. The current double issue of conditions,which explores the politics of quality management in architecture, tries to counter this tendency. By presenting more diverse views and complex perspectives we hope to initiate the discussion on the role of quality in architecture politics.
