© Bloomsbury 2014. The theme of transgression has been the subject of much twentieth-century thought, touching on a range of ideas including, for example, identity, society, the nature of architecture and the social role of the carnival. Here, Rachel Sara and David Littlefield set out how the notion of transgression can be applied to the relationships between body and space, and the methods through which contributors to this special issue of Architecture and Culture have investigated the theme. Through this critical essay the authors argue that notions of transgression open up new possibilities which significantly redefine our understanding of how our bodies, and the spaces which frame and define them, can be reconsidered and redefined.
