Extremely scarce catalogue issued for their exhibition at the ICA in 1973. “Cheer up – it’s Archigram , is a cry to the world at large …the world of architecture and those who have to experience architecture…a cry…” for goodness sake stop being so grim and unimaginative…the world is an imprefect place…and yes, there are many things that must be changed…and there are ways in which the old concept of “house”, “city”, “design”, problem”, “place”, “space, “artefact” (and the rest) can be exploded, shaken, pummeled, and re-invented.” Could easily have been a (small) issue of Archigram.
