bplus.xyz is a collaborative architecture practice that brings together different actors (from theory to practice) with different formats (from buildings to campaigns, exhibitions, texts and films). In exchange with others, we develop projects that consider architecture systemically: as an open process and something beyond the finished object. To do so, we look around us to better understand the contemporary issues that must be at the basis of any architectural project. In concrete terms we are asking: what are the challenges in a changing society and how can we, as architects, contribute to this transformation with ecologically and economically viable answers?


bplus.xyz believes that working in the system, means working on the system. Thus, we don’t complain but rather see the given framework (from existing buildings to legislation) as active design tools that already carry the potential for transformation. Thus, bplus.xyz is a continuation and reorientation of the collaborative practice Brandlhuber+ towards a cooperative model, which is linking the idea of collaboration that drives the practice ever since its beginnings.

Lead by Arno Brandlhuber, Olaf Grawert, Jonas Janke, Roberta Jurčić and Jolene Lee; in team with Franziska Gödicke and Moritz Heuberger; in collaboration with ARCH+, Ludwig Engel, Muck Petzet Architekten, Christopher Roth, Spazio Cura and Katharina Volgger.
