Bund Deutscher Architekten BDA
The BDA (the Association of German Architects) comprises around 5,000 freelance architects and urban planners, who stand for quality and personal integrity and were for these reasons called into the association. It acts at different levels within the Federation, in state organisations and regional groups to promote “the mission” of architecture and building culture. The new website is intended as a common platform for these associations and groups. The main concern was to show “good” architecture – in other words, visually striking and attractive, with a focus on the multifaceted subject of architecture. Besides its function as an information and exchange platform for the individual members, it was important to provide information to the public, e.g., construction clients and architects, on the work of the BDA. The complex structure had to be designed to be simple and user-friendly. A further important criterion was that the website has to be maintained by many members/editors. A simple content management system was required, with the ability to share content both internally as well as externally.

Um diese Faktoren optimal mit einzubeziehen und um eine größtmögliche Identität mit der Website zu erzielen, hat Moniteurs in drei Workshops mit den Vertretern verschiedener Gruppen gemeinsam bestimmte Teilaspekte erarbeitet. Entstanden ist eine Website, die die Kompetenz eines deutschlandweit agierenden Verbandes visuell großzügig, übersichtlich und zeitgemäß wiedergibt.
With these factors in mind, and in order to maximise the identity of the website, Moniteurs worked out particular aspects together with the representatives of the various groups over the course of three workshops.
