"The Archigram Archival Project (AAP) is a purely digital resource, displaying digital versions of works held in many different collections. The main collections are the Archigram Archive, held and run by Dennis Crompton and the Ron Herron Archive, held and run by Simon Herron, but work from other personal Archigram collections and public collections has also been made available through this current project. ...
The AAP focuses on the main Archigram period of 1961-1974, but includes all the projects, both before and after these dates, which have been included in the project list of the Archigram Archives at the time of doing the project. The main omissions from the Archigram Archival Project website are the films, television programmes and audio-visual material which for technical or copyright reasons cannot be included at this stage."

"Long before high tech was a recognisable movement, six English lads concocted visions of an architecture influenced by space travel, cartoons, and underground culture.In 1963, Archigram--a collaboration of Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, Ron Herron, David Greene, and Mike Webb--coalesced and began an inventive run that in many ways paralleled that of the Beatles, including the ultimate (and, in their case, amicable) split and the continuation of a number of solo careers. Like the Beatles, Archigram wasn't founded on clarion principles but came together almost casually, six lads with a childhood in common and the urge to jam. And, like the Beatles, Archigram reconnected with a squandered tradition, reinvestigating a number of sites mainstream architecture had written off--machines in the garden, the joys of consumption, the family of the object, the carnival of new ideas."
