Plug-In City Stage 3 Central London, Archigram 1964 / London, United Kingdom
At Seven Dials head South East to the Covent Garden Underground station. Pay the fare but do not follow the other passengers onto the lift. Take the spiral staircase that leads 193 steps down to the platform. Halfway down a door will appear. Behind this door you will find the Underground Plug-In City. (9th May 2012, London) Archigram’s iconic images for Plug-In City take on specific structure in Stage 3 Plug-In City, branching out over Central London and indicating zones of intensity. Its relationship to the specific site implies the limits of network and scale for its systematic urbanity.
