Description:

This paper discusses Archigram, the 1960's innovative British architecture group that spawned futuristic and idealistic architectural drawings that redefined the concept of livable space. The paper's main focus is on one of their projects, the Walking City by Ron Herron. The paper addresses the concept of individual choice and the effects of mobility as factors in urbanism.

From the Paper:

"Archigram was a collective of six young renegade British architects; Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb, who sought to turn the established notion of architecture as something permanent, static and enduring on its ear (Wolfe). Their name, Archigram, was derived from a publication they produced called the Architectural Telegram. Coming into 1960s pop culture at the same time as the Beatles, they have been recognized as the Beatles of architecture."
