BALTIC celebrates the imagination and ingenuity of Archigram, the group of British architects whose dynamic and provocative vision of future life brought the pop spirit to the architectural avant garde in 1960s Britain.

Vibrant, playful, optimistic and iconoclastic, the visionary architectural projects presented by Archigram in exhibitions, collages, drawings and films, played an important role in 1960s pop culture and have an enduring influence on architecture today.

Archigram was founded in London in 1961 around a nucleus of young architects – Warren Chalk, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb. This exhibition recaptures the excitement and energy of the original projects, through installations, inflatables, films, collages and drawings.


Curated by the Design Museum in collaboration with Archigram and designed by Archigram.
