Media: Zeitgeist - The Design Museum's show reveals Archigram's lasting influence on British culture

Archigram is often pigeon-holed under "architecture" - and yes, Warren Clarke, Peter Cook, Dennis Crompton, David Greene, Ron Herron and Michael Webb were (and, in some cases, are still) architects. But in their collective manifestation, they stood at one remove from the mundane business of designing real buildings.

This exhibition shows just what they were into - collages, drawings, films, a magazine, installations. Even, bizarrely, inflatables. And, of course, a manifesto.

But history has been less than kind to Archigram. It was at the heart of the pop art movement of the 60s before fizzling out in the 70s - and it was quickly forgotten or, worse, mocked. But this show, which takes us through the group's evolution from Living City through Walking City to Plug-in City, unearths an enduring influence on British design.

The show: Archigram

The time: 3 April to 4 July

The place: The Design Museum
