Description

This is a chronicle of the work of a group of young British architects that became the most influential architecture movement of the 1960s, as told by the members themselves. It includes material published in the early issues of their journal, as well as numerous texts, poems, comics, photocollages, drawings and fantastical architecture projects. Work presented includes Instant City, pod living, the Features Monte Carlo entertainment centre, Blowout Village, and the Cushicle personalized enclosure. Archigram's influence continues - direct descendants of the group's work include Lebbeus Woods, Neil Denari, Takasaki Masaharu, and Morphosis. This title is a facsimile edition of a book originally published in 1972, with a new introduction by Michael Webb.
