Reviews
Four decades after the initial publication of Charles Jencks and Nathan Silver's manifesto for improvisation, adhocism is still very much in vogue...Now recognisable as one of the core Postmodern texts, it remains equally subversive and sustainable, as much a manifesto of its time as a guide for the present.--Architectural Review--

An expanded edition of a 1972 book, which now appears prescient, this is an exploration of an idea of design that blends Dada, high-tech and DIY. The result is close to contemporary ideas about hacking and mass customisation.
