Michael Webb presents “Roots: Architecture Scene: London ’60-’65”



Michael Webb, professor of architecture at The Cooper Union, presented “Roots: Architecture Scene: London ’60-65,” February 3, 2014 as part of Texas A&M’s spring 2014 Architecture Lecture Series.

In the 1960s, Webb was a member of The Archigram Group, a collection of six young London architects who championed a playful, pop-inspired vision of a technocratic future, rebelling against what they saw as a stodgy English architectural scene. The group published a series of iconic magazines that contained the members’ architectural concepts and screeds against the status quo of English design.
