Archigram Archival Project

Archigram Archival Project

The Archigram Archival Project made the works of seminal experimental architectural group Archigram available free online for an academic and general audience. The project was funded by a £304,000 grant from the AHRC and was led by Professor Kester Rattenbury (Principal Investigator) with Professor Murray Fraser (co investigator). It was designed by the EXP Research Group in the Department of Architecture in collaboration with Archigram and their heirs and with the Centre for Parallel Computing, School of Electronics and Computer Science, also at the University of Westminster. Clare Hamman was Project Manager, Filip Visnjic and Pierpaolo de Panfilo designed the website. It was a major archival work, as well as a new kind of academic archive, being purely digital -– displaying material held in different places around the world and privately and variously owned. It was aimed at a wide online design community, discovering it through Google or social media, as well as a traditional academic audience, and it has been widely acclaimed in both fields.
