TreeHugger has referred to Archigram, the group of British Architects and students out of the AA (Architectural Association School) that came up with plug-in cities, walking cities, blow-up cities and other ideas that are all the rage again. Now the BBC has picked up on it, with a recent interview of Peter Cook, one of the key players in Archigram and not a comedic partner of Dudley Moore. archigram image
