a compilation of products, furniture, jewelry, architecture and artists that float our boat.

Archigram, a British architectural collective, are the subject of a new book. Published by the MIT press, the book reviews the history and major projects of the group with many images not seen in most other books that feature Archigram's work.

I have always loved the unique quality the Archigram drawings contain. The Walking City and Plug-In City are the most interesting large-scale works. The Suitaloon is an interesting take on clothing-as-housing. The best part is that these ideas were cooked up in 1960's. Their ideas are often imitated by architects since then, but few can achieve the same results.
