"Design Without Authority" speaks to autonomous action, and building without authority in architecture and design. The project borrows lessons from an ad hoc approach often seen in urban and rural environments, where an abundance of improvised decisions, broken rules, unauthorized additions and constructions participate in the realization of the built environment. Can tacit architectural knowledge become ubiquitous, entering everyday life?
