BEYOND ARCHIGRAM THE STRUCTURE OF CIRCULATION PDF

Designer Theo Crosby was the "hidden hand" behind the group. Their works offered a seductive vision of a glamorous future machine age; however, social and environmental issues were left unaddressed. Archigram agitated to prevent modernism from becoming a sterile and safe orthodoxy by its adherents. Unlike ephemeralisation from Buckminster Fuller which assumes more must be done with less material because material is finite , Archigram relies on a future of interminable resources.

Buckminster Fuller and Yona Friedman were also important sources of inspiration. By the early s the strategy of the group had changed. In Theo Crosby wrote [4] that its members had "found their original impulses towards megastructures blunted by the changing intellectual climate in England, where the brash dreams of modern architects are received with ever-increasing horror. They are now more concerned with the infiltration of technology into the environment at a much less obvious level".

It provides a new agenda where nomadism is the dominant social force; where time, exchange and metamorphosis replace stasis; where consumption, lifestyle and transience become the programme; and where the public realm is an electronic surface enclosing the globe —David Greene [5] The group was financially supported by mainstream architects, such as David Rock of BDP.

The machine had taken over and people were the raw material being processed, the difference being that people are meant to enjoy the experience. The Walking City, Ron Herron, [ edit ] The Walking City is constituted by intelligent buildings or robots that are in the form of giant, self-contained living pods that could roam the cities. The context was perceived as a future ruined world in the aftermath of a nuclear war. Instant City[ edit ] Instant City is a mobile technological event that drifts into underdeveloped, drab towns via air balloons with provisional structures performance spaces in tow.
