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.
We propose, within a period of four months, to undertake a feasibility study of the central area of Margate.
this study will be both analytical, strategic and exploratory in terms of design.
these notes outline the series of interrelated studies which together will form our work for the Margate Borough Council.
As the list, and the composition of our team indicates, these studies are inter-disciplinary. Our belief however, is that the total study must combine the logic of a serious, procedural investigation by experts with the constant conference of ideas by all members of the team.
Archigram Architects has had much experience of creative work involving such teams.
Our reputation has been largely in the field of new concepts in Urban Design and of Leisure facilities, and we approach the challenge of this study with a firm commitment to fresh but authenticated thinking.
The total Feasibility Study will consist of the following study areas:
1. ECONOMIC, POLITICAL AND SOCIAL SURVEY
2. DEMOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS
3. A STATEMENT OF THE FUTURE
4. AN URBAN MATHEMATICAL MODEL
5. PLANNING PROPOSALS
6. SOCIOLOGICAL STATEMENT
7. ECONOMIC STATEMENT
8. MARINE STUDIES
9. MOVEMENT AND COMMUNICATION
10. THE NON-PHYSICAL FUTURE: PROPOSALS
11. THE PHYSICAL FUTURE: VISUALISATION
