Archigram: Monte Carlo

Archigram was an avant-garde architectural collective active in the sixties and seventies. Funded by mainstream architects, their futurist projects and ideas were largely unrealized. To illustrate their big ideas, they had a fantastic presentation style of drawings and elevations which seem to function better as pop art more than architectural plans.

Below are some pieces of their presentation for a competition to design an hockey arena/convention center and public park in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Their project, developed between 1969 and 1973, was not built.
