Starting from the vitruvian paradigm utilitas, firmitas, venustas, wondering how this can become a current tool for defining architectures produced in a professional environment prey of constant destabilizing upheavals.
Precarious architecture makes a virtue out of necessity, seeking non-vitruvian alternatives to keep alive the spirit of the profession.
Self-construction and self-production become new tools for creating architectures through new collaborative practices and knowledge sharing. Professional empowerment becomes part of a broader process, which concerns the development of communities that create around each new precarious architecture.
