From the Publisher. The Archigram group pioneered a playful brand of architecture that was visionary, utopian, and grounded in social need. Through a provocative series of publications and exhibitions, the avant-garde cooperative challenged an architectural establishment they felt had become reactionary and self-serving. They advocated a complete rethinking of the relationships between technology, society, and architecture, rightly predicting today's information revolution decades before it came to pass.

One of the things that led me to the Architectural Association in London was Archigram’s work. I particularly love Peter Cook’s Plug-in-City, his futuristic vision for an urban infrastructure that can continuously rebuild and reinvent itself to meet the needs of its inhabitants.
