Archigram book launch

​To celebrate the publication of Archigram: The Book, Archigram founder members Sir Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton and David Greene will join Nigel Coates in the RIBA Bookshop to talk about Archigram's work, which began as a cry against ‘the crap then going up in London’.

Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s, Archigram envisioned the future of architecture in ways that enthralled a generation. In an era defined by the space race, they developed a high-tech, lightweight, infrastructural approach that stretched far beyond known technologies or contemporary realities. They devised autonomous dwellings and focused on survival technology; they experimented with megastructures and modular construction systems; they explored mobility through the environment and the use of portable living capsules: all through the medium of an incredible series of drawings and models.
