Archigram! Undeservedly obscure creative design from the past

I was recently shown the work of the Archigram group, who evidently had a few years of creative collaboration on architecture, design, urban planning, personal living technology, and other projects. The book I was shown had page after page bursting with ideas: geometric forms, futuristic machines,  fantasy urban housing, mobile cities, bold psychedelic graphics…they are an undeservedly obscure collective that needs more attention.

These walking cities schematics make me long for a future that exists only in the mind…
