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.
'Dreams Come True' is the idea of an organization which offers wonderful new ways of living, not only the hardware (gadgetry, enclosures, vehicles, etc.) necessary, but also non-physical things like what work you do. So 'Dreams Come True' churns out a big catalogue, and the resulting environment is a compo of what everyone has chosen ... you may say 'How do people know what to choose and would they anyway plump for what they're used to?' This is where the soap opera comes in - daily on CBS TV you can see the passion and loves of people living in the world that 'Dreams Come True' has made possible. So folks know what they're choosing and the environments or 'scenarios' are anyway test pieces ... 'Dreams Come True' is really a coordinating group with industry and finance to make possible that wonderful new world we all dream about ... love from Spid ... P.S. The fan-shaped thing and the oil painting show what oerndaspeodic living can be like ... and are both sides of the send out.
Mike Webb Archigram, Edited by Peter Cook, Warren Chalk, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron & Mike Webb, 1972 [reprinted New York: Princeton Architectural Press, 1999].
