Book Description

27 Nov 1972
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.

First Sentence
In late 1960, in various flats in Hampstead, a loose group of people started to meet: to criticize projects, to concoct letters to the press, to combine to make competition projects, and generally prop one another up against the boredom of working in London architectural offices. Read the first page

This book contains a well organized view on the works of Archigram, both written and drawn. Despite being all black and white, it's still very rich in visual terms, as would be expected of a book dedicated to Archigram.
As an architecture student I would recommend it to architecture-related people because it's a very good way of getting to know the works of this group, and also to anyone interested in the subject, since their works were very "audience-directed" and don't require a lot of specific knowledge to understand.

3.0 out of 5 stars archigram 17 Jan 2006
By Alexis Jahiel Buckley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Content-wise the book is great, but all the images are black and white, which in terms of the work of archigram, is a disappointment. I will certainly end up buying a second book to fill in the blanks that this one leaves.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dive back into the 60's 21 Mar 2006
By Michele Chiuini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The merit of the book is to provide an affordable compilation of Archigram's images and original text, mostly published on Architectural Design almost forty years ago. While it is disappointing not to have color pictures, the graphics are still compelling and provocative (all done without Photoshop!). It is a very good basic reference book if you are interested in Archigram.

This is a great book to look through when you want to get your creative juices flowing. Even since I learned about Archigram in Architecture history I have been obsessed with their work!

Filled of drawings and graphics from the team Archigram with good explaining of the concept behind each project.
