Abstract This research examines an experimental architectural practice and uncovers nine sub-practices within: design through explicit re-working of the propositions of other architects; design through less explicit re-working; design through implicit reference to everyday objects; design through intuition and explicit strategy; design through chunking and interrupting chunking; design through a deliberate pursuit of discomfort; design through abrogation of the author; advocacy as a design process; and a practice titled ‘fake-it until you make-it'.

The knowledge uncovered takes the form of: the idea that a selected community of peers can have influence over a creative practice by virtue of the knowledge of the existence of the peers; finding that the complexity of the intertwined nature of motivations, contexts, communities, collaborators, clients and random sources is an integral part of creative practice; the method of being able to become aware of this complexity without dismantling it; and the observation that any legitimate claim to authorship is placed amidst a conglomeration of legitimate claims by others.
