Example text

Now I don’t want to overburden this piece with musical metaphors, but I can’t resist. By 2003, Peter Cook was head of the most influential school of Architecture in the United Kingdom, and, as a recognised leader, everybody should have been cheering him. Mr Chalk’s nieces and nephews were there for the reception; glum, angelic in a row, while Warren himself had died drunk and anonymous in the gutter years before. Mr Heron has also died, leaving his son, also an architect, somewhat heir apparent, not unlike Jason to John Bonham of Led Zeppelin.

It is not fully explained by the Smithsons’ intellectual level (well above the usual architectural practitioner), or their idiosyncratic contribution to English architectural culture (Cook, again, notes inter alia ‘the in-fight, the wearing of 6 What is it about the Smithsons? remarkable clothes, the tea ceremony, the heroic pronouncement’). It certainly is not explained by their influence on the wider society of patrons and the public (nil). No, the Smithsons’ reputation is based not only on what we think of their work, the products of that charismatic intelligence, but also on what we think of them – on how seriously we take them in their adopted persona (they preferred to be considered as a single entity) of sequestered English intellectuals generating ideas of profound interest to the world.

This, from the band of jesters who were authors of, as American critic Mark Wigley put it, ‘the most devastating critique of Architecture in the C20th, so devastating it made you want to give up’. The enduring power of Archigram contrasts starkly with the reputations of other peddlers of 1960s values that have withered on the vine of architectural culture over the same time period. Brian Anson, firebrand of Covent Garden, is now to be found pottering around a cottage in France. Who now cares for the work of Lucien Kroll?
