Abstract: This essay deals with the architectural plan as that artefact which is the currency of architectural exchange. If artefactual material is seen as comprising 'memes' whereby cultural information is transferred, then all artefactual material should fit within a lineage of inheritance. To illustrate this argument the genealogy of the plan of Barrie Biermann's home is presented, also including plans of other houses.
