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.
COMPETITIONS Northampton County Hall
Full details have been released of the two-stage competition promoted by Northampton County Council for a new county hall which, after local government reorganisation in 1974, will house services which are at present divided between several local authorities. The promoters hope that the building will become a focal point for county affairs and that its design will reflect 'the responsibilities towards the community which fall on elected members and the council staff'. The site, Wollton Hall Park, is high with wide views over the county and has plenty of mature trees.
first prize is £7000, the second £3500 and the third £2350. Unpremiated competitors who reach the second stage will get £1000 each. The assessors are Richard Sheppard, Harry Faulkner Brown, Neville Conder, William Whitfield, A.C.A. Colton (chairman of the council), D.P. Oxenham (chairman of the General Services Committee) and J.F. Goff (county architect). Competitors must be architects who live in the UK.
Conditions may be obtained after 1 November from the Clerk to the County council, County Hall, Northampton (envelopes should be marked 'architectural competition'). A deposit of £10 is required. Last date for submission fro the first stage is 30 March 1973.
