Transgression will explore the idea that those working on andbeyond the architectural periphery can make a positive impact onthe mainstream. In much the same way as the avant-garde of acentury ago - Dada, Surrealism and early Modernism -influenced and undermined established thinking and method, it showshow similarly transgressive practices are being adopted byarchitects to help reinvent and reposition the profession. Thetransgressive architect engages with conceptual art, pioneers urbanintervention, interacts with informal development, breaks barriersof taste, shifts between research and practice, creates criticalprojects and is an activist and perhaps even a "new Utopian".
