Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Modern Cities Breed Alienation. Insurgent Urbanists Are Pushing Back.
Recetas Urbanas is perhaps most highly acclaimed for the first method, "alegal" architecture. Cirugeda and the others masterfully exploit legal loopholes in order to develop subversive projects that are both functional and political. In 1997, Cirugeda graffitied a wall and sued himself in order to get a scaffolding permit on the street. With the permit, he built a shelter-structure that could house people without interference from the authorities for several months.
