An exhibition commissioned by The Architecture Foundation, 'The Rule of Regulations' is an exploration of the aesthetics and consequences of housing regulation. It pits Le Corbusier’s Maison Citrohan against five pieces of current UK housing policy to see how it would look if built in contemporary Britain. Does our culture of guidance and regulation create a new vernacular? What are the social and aesthetic impacts of housing design policy?
