Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

We could seemingly apply the same logic to the law, itself based on a series of codes, protocols and norms. But the law is notoriously unfunny. Is there such a thing as a legal joke? And if so, what could it produce - especially with regard the laws that govern our built environment? Put more simply; can jokes bring down buildings?
