Description

Transgression will explore the idea that those working on and beyond the architectural periphery can make a positive impact on the mainstream. In much the same way as the avant-garde of a century ago Dada, Surrealism and early Modernism influenced and undermined established thinking and method, it shows how similarly transgressive practices are being adopted by architects to help reinvent and reposition the profession. The transgressive architect engages with conceptual art, pioneers urban intervention, interacts with informal development, breaks barriers of taste, shifts between research and practice, creates critical projects and is an activist and perhaps even a 'new Utopian'. Contributors include: Can Altay, Kim Dovey, Chris Jencks, David Littlefield, Alistair Parvin, Doina Petrescu and Robin Wilson Featured architects: Atelier d'architecture autogeree, EXYZT, Bernard Khoury, Office for Subversive Architecture and Bernard Tschumi.
