A journal published in London irregularly between 1961 and 1970 as well as the name of the group that created it, Archigram is one of the most significant phenomena to emerge from post-war architectural culture. Yet despite a resurgence in interest in Archigram, the available literature has been limited to exhibition catalogues. Beyond Archigramchanges that. It is the first archival study of Archigram to look at the visual dissemination of an ideological model among the attendant avant-garde practices of the 1960s. Hadas Steiner shows how the assimilation of the Archigram imagery set the bar for the visual output of what have become commonplace tools in architectural practice, and provides a foundation for further analysis of the integration of digital technology into every level of design.
