Jonathan Hill's latest work explores the dissimilarities between architects and the institution of architecture. Hill delivers a luminous critique of current architectural institutions and outlines a proposal for the architectural producer, unfettered by convention and responsive to the creativity of the user. An illegal architect questions and subverts the precedents, codes, and laws of architecture. In a project worthy of Marcel Duchamp, The Illegal Architect is serious fun, where architecture can be made of anything, anywhere, anyhow, and by anyone.
