Description: The paring of smuggling and architecture together is purposeful. The connotation of smuggling pre-supposes that what is secretively being smuggled is something that is small enough to be easily hidden. Smuggling Architecture provides a new and alternative approach to design that injects architectural significance into topics that have lost their connection with the discipline. It plays along with the common and everyday to insert itself in a manner that seeks to both conceal itself and engage with the public. We see Smuggling Architecture as the beginning of a series of interventions that engage with a larger audience and foster broader interest in architectural values.
