Description/Abstract

"In the struggle for growth, the architecture of informal commerce is complicit in the perpetuation of an impermanent and uncertain existence that favors acquiescence over resistance. More is required of it.

An architectural intervention can provide pivot points upon which to direct the flow of unregulated commerce and subvert state-sponsored efforts to peripheralize it."
