Through essays, projects, drawings and interviews PLAT 1.0 interrogates notions real and fake, tracing the impostor through its manifestations from character to practice. What is it about the character of the impostor that applies to architecture, both in practice and form? Behind the impostor's artful disguise is a space of innovation. The elegant crimes of the impostor can serve as provocations for architecture, moving the discipline beyond the boundaries of convention. PLAT 1.0 invites you to stop worrying and learn to love the impostor.
