The Archigram Archival Project Now Online

Don't wait. Just click here to see it.

In a surreal world not so far away, Warren Chalk, Peter Cooke, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron, Michael Webb and countless collaborators formed the group
Archigram. Part architectural visionaries, part cultural commentators, and part machine, the group would go on to create a technicolor utopia of projects that walked off of the page and presaged the future collision of architecture, technology, and the society of tomorrow. In an exhaustive effort of archiving, research, and archi-sleuthing, the architectural research group EXP at the University of Westminster have published the Archigram Archival Project - an online repository of over 200 examples of the groups work. The project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Foundation. If anyone has searched for the work of Archigram in the past, many will understand the pain and frustration at the dearth of available information on the Archigram projects, but this website opens a new door into the archi-mechanical techno-utopias of a truly unique architectural movement.
