Archigram images available on the web

Almost 10,000 images from one of architecture’s most revolutionary groups, Archigram, will go online this month. This initiative, from the University of Westminster’s Department of Architecture, creates one of the richest digital resource for modern architecture in the world.

Archigram were the one of the most provocative and visionary of 1960s architecture Groups, looking creatively at post‐war consumer culture and the new possibilities that digital technology would offer. Much of Archigram's work became icons, such as Ron Herron's image of Walking City arriving in Manhattan. Achigram, which was awarded RIBA’s Royal Gold Medal in 2002, have not previously had a comprehensive collection available for view.

The Archigram Archival Project (http://archigram.westminster.ac.uk) has the firm’s full range of drawings, photographs and other material from more than 200 projects created mainly in the 1960s and 1970s by Warren Chalk, Dennis Crompton, Peter Cook, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb.

The site reveals key projects including Walking City, Plug‐in City and Instant City, as well as built designs including a swimming pool for Rod Stewart and large proposals like an unrealised Monte Carlo casino

The project was run by a team from EXP, the research centre for Experimental Practice in the Department of Architecture, University of Westminster.
