Up for grabs at this year’s AN Best of Design Awards is a signed 1971 collage from Archigram. Made by Diana Jowsey in Endell Street, Covent Garden—Archigram’s London Studio—the collage includes iconic projects from the conceptual architectural group, such as Walking City, Instant City, and Rock Plug, and features drawings from Peter Cook, Warren Chalk, David Greene, Ron Herron, and Michael Webb.
For your chance to win this coveted print, enter the AN Best of Design Awards 2017 where there are 42 categories for submissions.
In this the fifth edition of the Awards, winners will receive the signed Archigram print and will also be exposed to 1,000,000 AN readers and members of the A/E/C design community. Other worthy projects will be shared on AN’s social media channels and will also be published in a special 2017 Design Annual publication created specifically for AN Best of Design.
