EXP launched The Archigram Archival Project with a party at the Old Cinema and the Fyvie Hall at the University of Westminster in London on April 19 2010. With worldwide travel plans in meltdown because of volcano Eyjafjallajökull, Archigrammers Dennis Crompton and Mike Webb, plus host Bill Menking and dog, joined the other Archigrammers Sir Peter Cook and EXP’s own David Greene live from New York, via Skype. Other special guests included Ron Herron’s son Simon Herron, Warren Chalk’s daughters Daphne Chalk Birdsall and Gail Murray, and all their families, plus friends and colleagues from almost fifty years of Archigram’s amazing career. The AAP has already been called the best ever website devoted to a single practice, featuring almost 10,000 items of Archigram’s work. The evening featured a typically feisty talk from Sir Peter Cook and a tour of the new site by Dennis Crompton plus a balloon launch of the beautiful postcard series for still-wider dissemination.
