Archigram! Archive! Ahoy!

Look!! An exciting new online resource has been launched recently, collecting much of the work produced by seminal architectural group Archigram (actually I'd prefer them to be called Archigram! with an exclamation mark, after Neu! or maybe Oliver!) which included Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Richmal Crompton, Warren Clarke, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Titch, and possibly a few others.

As a practice that planned so much and built so little, the archive is really the best place to appreciate the revolutionary ideas that Archigram's six members promulgated, a legacy that still provokes, entertains and inspires.
The Archigroup... and a woman!
Some important film and television projects are missing from this site for technical/copyright reasons, but there are many multimedia items to discover, and YouTube hosts plenty of Archigram interviews and insights - remember Justine Frischmann?!

Not that one.
