Archigram: Experimental Architecture 1961-1974

Archigram: Experimental Architecture 1961-1974
CHICAGO  •  Museum of Contemporary Art  •  Ongoing
Although none of their major projects were ever built, Archigram's utopian visions of modular communities such as Walking City (1964), Plug-In City (1965), and Instant City (1968) anticipated the mobility, interconnectivity, and technology of the information age and globalism. Although coming squarely out of London's "swinging sixties", both sharing and inspiring design aesthetics of the time, Archigram projects continue to inspire contemporary architects, designers, and theorists. Their legacy has inspired works by such architects as Norman Foster, Richard Rogers, and Renzo Piano and is considered the direct source for Rogers's and Piano's renowned Centre Pompidou.

Archigram: Experimental Architecture 1961–1974 features hundreds of original drawings and sketches, over a dozen scale models, and an integrated multi-media "arena" with slide projections, videos, music, and sound recordings.
