ARCHIGRAM #8 (London: 1968).
Ed. Peter Cook. The 'Popular Pak' issue, designed to coincide with the 14th Milan Triennale and themed around population and self-sustaining environments. Unnumbered folded b/w sheets of various sizes loosely contained in original printed yellow card folder.
Contributors include Warren Chalk, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron, Geoff Taunton, Michael Webb, and Peter Cook, whose editorial statement reads (in part): "Archigram is the mouthpiece of a group of architects, designers, environmental researchers... (what's in a name?), based in London and the United States, the first issue was produced in 1961 as a protest sheet, and all issues have been manifestos... Archigram Eight is entirely concerned with the problem of direct personal provision: of comfort, facility, satisfaction, enquiry, and above all the effect of phenomena upon each other... So we have no buildings here, the boundaries are down".
This issue, one of Archigram's most influential (it was listed in the Whole Earth Catalog for Spring 1969), featured the Cushicle and the first appearance of the 'suitaloon' (a portable/wearable dwelling device).
Folder slightly rubbed and lightly creased, o/w Very Good plus; contents Fine.
