At the beginning of November Binke Lenhardt was appointed as a member of the BDA (Association of German Architects).
From the BDA's website:
The BDA promotes a planning and building culture that aims to enrich residential space and improve quality of life through functionally and aesthetically designed buildings, squares and cities. The BDA mediates between clients and architects in order to support an autonomous planning culture free of outside influence and advocates for broader use of public architectural competitions. The association is also committed to assuring high-quality education for the next generation of architects and urban planners.
The BDA appoints only members whose character and work meet strict criteria; appointment in the BDA is both an honor and a recognition of high-quality work. All decisions regarding BDA membership are made by the Regional Associations.
The regional associations are part of the national BDA (Bundesverband), which, in turn, is part of the Architects’ Council of Europe (ACE) and the International Union of Architects (UIA).
