More Than 200 Projects are included in the Archigram Archival Project. The AAP uses the group’s mainly chronological numbering system and includes everything given an Archigram project number. This comprises projects done by members before they met, the Archigram magazines (grouped together at no. 100), the projects done by Archigram as a group between 1961 and 1974, and some later projects.
LCC Technical Colleges and School of Art in Oxford Street and Chelsea
The LCC architect’s attempts to build in high density central areas will attract the attention of all city architects who have similar difficult problems to tackle. The perspective above shows four new buildings proposed for Manresa and King’s Road, Chelsea. In the foreground is part of a fire station, the practice-tower for which is shown in the model below. Beyond is a three-storey teaching block, at the corner of King’s Road and Manresa Road, which will house the department of chemistry of the Chelsea College of Science and technology. It is planned with long corridors round an internal court to avoid traffic noise. At the end is the eleven-storey hall of residence for 198 students, raised on stilts to give circulation area to the two-storey communal building in the rear, see below. The regular elevation of single cells is broken on the fourth by one floor for the warden’s flat and sick bay. The common rooms and assembly hall and dining room are in the communal building. The model, below, shows the new school of art, which replaces the former art departments of Chelsea College of Science and Regent Street Polytechnic. On the ground floor is the sculpture studios and common rooms flanking a central exhibition space, dining and assembly hall. Triangular-section northlights light the studios on the top floor.
