Issue of this important, beautifully designed little magazine of radical architecture published on the occasion of the 1968 Milan Triennale. The young Archigram group operated from a utopian futurist, Buckminster Fuller-inspired view, with technology at the forefront. As Mike Webb put it, Archigram originated "because we felt at the time that very exciting things were happening [in architecture], as indeed they were," particularly in the US -- but London still lacked an avant garde, and felt "empty and lifeless" [CLIP STAMP FOLD, p. 27]. ARCHIGRAM EIGHT is a series of loose sheets dealing with "the problem of direct personal provision: of comfort, facility, satisfaction, enquiry..." Each sheet is marked within several categories including metamorphosis, nomad, indeterminacy, hard(ware)/soft(ware), emancipation, exchange/response, and comfort. An important record of avant-garde architecture (and radical '60s optimism), with gorgeous graphic design.
