Guerrilla tactics have encompassed guerrilla marketing, guerrilla theater and now have extended as far as guerrilla city building as 'WEAK' creates illegal architecture on the outskirts of Taipei, Taiwan. Guerrilla architecture signifies a subculture of building illegal infrastructure in the form of urban farms, night markets and other places where groups of people can converge.The illegal abode beside Taipei is named the 'Instant City.'

WEAK, an organization known for creating illegal infrastructures, is composed of radical architects. Its buildings implement organic and eye-catching materials. It is an effort by WEAK to make sure the ancient history of the Chinese is not lost in modern infrastructure. The concept of creating illegal city structures is an entirely new feat in guerrilla tactics and is an insanely forward move in keeping old relics preserved.
