Book Summary:

Archigram comprised Warren Chalk (1927-88), Peter Cook (1936-), Dennis Crompton (1935-), David Greene (1937-), Ron Herron (1930-94), and Michael Webb (1937-). Together, in the 1960s and early 1970s, they 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, infra-structural 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. Archigram's influence has been profound and enduring. They gave the High-tech movement its impetus; they inspired architects such as Renzo Piano and Norman Foster; and they laid the ground for the design of buildings such as the Pompidou Centre. This book catalogues Archigram's activities over fourteen years, together with commentaries by the architects and critics writing then and now. Edited and designed by Archigram member Dennis Crompton, it has been 40 years in the making. AUTHORS: Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, Ron Herron, David Greene and Michael Webb are the founder members of Archigram. Their theoretical work began in the 1960s as a cry against "the crap then going up in London". Although they never constructed a building together, their influence over a generation of architects continues to be felt today. The group was awarded the RIBA Gold Medal in 2002. Reyner Banham was one of the leading architectural commentators in the decades when Archigram was active, and the author of Megastucture (1976), which featured their work. Martin Pawley documented the architectural scene in London from the 1970s onwards from the perspective of a restless insider. His writing about Archigram is incisive and colourful. Michael Sorkin is an architect and urbanist whose practice spans design, planning, criticism, and teaching. His books include Exquisite Corpse: Writing on Buildings (1991). SELLING POINTS: * Comprehensive documentation of Archigram's iconic works * Generous landscape format allows drawings to be reproduced at a large scale * Contributions from all Archigram members, and essays by critics writing then and now 500 colour, 50 b/w images

Book Summary:

Shortlisted for the 2008 Bruno Zevi Award presented by International Committee of Architectural Critics (CICA). and Winner, Trade Illustrated Category, 2006 AAUP Book Jacket and Journal Show. In the 1960s, the architects of Britain's Archigram group and Archigram magazine turned away from conventional architecture to propose cities that move and houses worn like suits of clothes. In drawings inspired by pop art and psychedelia, architecture floated away, tethered by wires, gantries, tubes, and trucks. In Archigram: Architecture without Architecture, Simon Sadler argues that Archigram's sense of fun takes its place beside the other cultural agitants of the 1960s, originating attitudes and techniques that became standard for architects rethinking social space and building technology. The Archigram style was assembled from the Apollo missions, constructivism, biology, manufacturing, electronics, and popular culture, inspiring an architectural movement—High Tech—and influencing the postmodern and deconstructivist trends of the late twentieth century. Although most Archigram projects were at the limits of possibility and remained unbuilt, the six architects at the center of the movement, Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron, and Michael Webb, became a focal point for the architectural avant-garde, because they redefined the purpose of architecture. Countering the habitual building practice of setting walls and spaces in place, Archigram architects wanted to provide the equipment for amplified living, and they welcomed any cultural rearrangements that would ensue. Archigram: Architecture without Architecture—the first full-length critical and historical account of the Archigram phenomenon—traces Archigram from its rediscovery of early modernist verve through its courting of students, to its ascent to international notoriety for advocating the "disappearance of architecture."

Book Summary:

Dies ist das definitive Buch über eine der bekanntesten Avantgardegruppen der Architekturgeschichte: die britische Gemeinschaft Archigram, die von 1960 bis 1974 aktiv war. Archigram war die zentrale Strömung der utopischen Avantgarde-Architektur in den westlichen Ländern und übte ihren Einfluss nicht aufgrund realer Bauten, sondern durch die Veröffentlichung gezeichneter Entwürfe aus. Diese bestanden nicht aus nüchternen Planzeichnungen, sondern boten eine raffinierte und suggestive Mischung aus Pop-Art, Comic, Agitprop und Fotomontage. In einer Epoche, die durch den Wettlauf ins Weltall gekennzeichnet war, entwickelten Archigram einen 'high-tech, lightweight, infrastructural approach' (David Jenkins), der weit über damals bekannte Technologien oder alltägliche Realitäten hinausreichte.0'Archigram ? The Book' erzählt nun erstmals die ganze Geschichte der aufregenden 14 Jahre Archigram, vom ersten Flugblatt bis zur Auflösung der Gruppe. Alle wichtigen Entwürfe, Architekturprojekte, Masterpläne, Ausstellungsarchitekturen und Aktionen werden anhand von Zeichnungen, Modellfotos, programmatischen Collagen und Fotomontagen dargestellt. Ein besonderer Platz kommt auch den legendären Magazinen und Postern zu, die den Ruhm von Archigram in die Welt trugen und im Buch faksimiliert sind. Die Originalmaterialien werden eingeordnet durch Kommentare der Mitglieder aus heutiger Optik sowie durch damalige und aktuelle Essays anderer bekannter Autoren.0So erneuert dieser Prachtsband, zusammengestellt von Archigram selbst und gestaltet von ihrem Mitglied Dennis Crompton, den unglaublichen Reichtum an Ideen und Erfindungen, der die Gruppe auszeichnete.

Book Summary:

Utopian thought, though commonly characterized as projecting a future without a past, depends on golden models for re-invention of what is. Through a detailed and innovative re-assessment of the work of three architects who sought to represent a utopian content in their work, and a consideration of the thoughts of a range of leading writers, Coleman offers the reader a unique perspective of idealism in architectural design. With unparalleled depth and focus of vision on the work of Le Corbusier, Louis I Kahn and Aldo van Eyck, this book persuasively challenges predominant assumptions in current architectural discourse, forging a new approach to the invention of welcoming built environments and transcending the limitations of both the postmodern and hyper-modern stance and orthodox modernist architecture.

Book Summary:

Beyond Archigram is the first study of the prehistory of digital representation to focus on the magazine Archigram, the magazine published in London irregularly between 1961 and 1970 and the name of the group that created it. Archigram is among the most significant phenomena to emerge in post-war architectural culture. The wired environments first advertised on its pages formulated an architectural vocabulary of metamorphosis and obsolescence that cross-pollinated industrial and digital technology at the same time as complex systems were becoming commercially available. Through archival, theoretical and visual analysis, Hadas Steiner explores the process through which this model was envisaged and disseminated within an international network of practitioners and shows how the assimilation of Archigram imagery set the course for the visual output of what are now commonplace tools in architectural practice. This book will provide a foundation for further inquiry into the integration of digital technology at every level of design.
