Set in London in the 1960s, Archigram was an "architectual telegram" designed by a handful of young men just out of architecture school. Feeling the architecture "scene" was too "sterile", these young men wanted to create something edgy. Journals, being too cumbersome and conservative, didn't allow the spontaneity and "urgency" these young men wanted to convey.

Ideas borne within the Archigram had life-altering potential, such as The Capsule Home and the Plug-In City, where homes were portable environments and cities were their power source.

A successful enterprise, Archigram continued to be printed until the 1970s, when the young men who created it decided to go their separate ways.
