Archigram 5. Metropolis

Dennis Crompton: “Having done the Living City Exhibition, the Living Arts catalogue for the exhibition is very much a city manifesto that we produced. We then produced an issue of Archigram with lots and lots of pages that were about the city, about Metropolis. So this was again a themed issue. Very small writing. The editorial’s where it should be, at the beginning. But just looking at city phenomena, you know, people like Ebenezer Howard, like Sant’Elia, like just a photograph of Piccadilly Circus. And this, as I say, this cover was designed by Rae and Ben Fether. Rae and Ben had worked with us on the Living City Exhibition as well. They’re product designers, and graphic designers. So this, mostly, goes through sort-of city phenomenon. Some of it real cities, some of it proposed cities….” Fifth Archigram magazine, ‘Metropolis’ city theme. two fold outs. Cover design by Rae and Ben Fether. Print run 1250.
