The first part of the article describes the context and reasons that generated the Archigram movement as well as its main principles and projects. The second part follows  the impact it had, on visual arts and on the mentality of the generations that followed, as well as on the new context that makes sort of possible, usable and effective some of the radical avant-garde concepts proposed by the group.
