May 1961: Archigram

Six London architects publish their ideas for transforming cities in a series of influential magazines, the first of which appeared in May 1961 (left). The collective and the magazine, both titled Archigram (combining ARCHItecture and teleGRAM), outlined projects that mixed urban planning with pop culture, futurism and fun.
