Dean Fishman Discusses Archigram Legacy in Architect's Newspaper

The Architect’s Newspaper covered the current Archigram exhibit at the college’s Liberty Gallery and included some words about the show from Dean Robert Fishman. He describes Archigram as “one of the rare true collaborations in architecture, Archigram’s six founders deployed graphics borrowed from advertising and sci-fi comics to upset the solemnity of 1960s corporate modernism. They conceived the city as a basic power and transportation grid into which people ‘plugged-in’ a constantly-changing array of mass-produced modules. In this urbanism of constant flux, everyone is an architect.”
