bogner.knoll (Vienna) and TRIAD (Berlin) won the competition to develop a feasibility study for the planned "Forum Recht" ("Law Forum") on the grounds of the German Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe.

The study is to present, clearly and convincingly, the feasibility, idea and design of a “Forum Recht” to decision-makers from politics and society, experts in the field and stakeholders from other relevant groups. The two internationally renowned firms, bogner.knoll and TRIAD, are currently working intensively on the guidelines for the project's content and design. The feasibility study will define and assess the options for and focus and scale of a "Forum Recht" in terms of content, operation and implementation. At the same time, the Institut fuer Zeitgeschichte (IfZ, Berlin/Munich) is developing a concept for the content of a permanent exhibition to be set up in the new building.

The "Forum Recht" in Karlsruhe is to be more than just a museum: participation and presentations of contemporary history, documentation, reflection and information are to form the basis on which different social groups can actively engage with historical and modern questions of law and the rule of law. The establishment and development of a "Forum Recht" in Karlsruhe is an important initiative at a time of intensive and often uncoordinated/uninformed discussion not just about law, justice and injustice but also about different legal cultures, and at a time in which apparently established legal principles are being called into question.
