slotted

Match the architectural concept with its description:

High tech Units = Units that could be replaced easily Flexible spaces = Spaces that could be changed according to change of use Mega-structure = A massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be plugged in Capsule units = A mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be plugged in

Match the urban planning idea with its characteristic:

Static planning norms = Existing planning norms of cities is static Quick and easy accessibility = Enabling quick and easy accessibility to all parts of the city Change of use = Change of use of different parts of the spaces Air conditioning of spaces = Providing air conditioning to spaces

Match the technological concept with its feature:

Substitution of unfit parts = Replacement and substitution of unfit/deteriorated parts Easy construction = Technology that enables easy construction New technologies = Adoption of new technologies in all aspects of city Addition and subtraction = Capability for addition and subtraction in architectural design

Match the futuristic movement with its association:

Archigram = Futuristic movement experimenting with modular technology and mobility through the environment Buckminster Fuller = Designer associated with the technocratic ideology Machine processing people = Idea that the machine had taken over and people were the raw material being processed Scientific fiction = Association with new ideas and trends that technology is going to overcome all aspects of human life

Match the concept with its application in city planning:

Technology in all aspects of city = Architects adopting technology in all aspects of city from unit – building – street Enjoyable experience for people = People meant to enjoy the experience of living within a technologically advanced city Urban walking city = Vision for a city where people can easily walk to all parts of the city Modular technology adoption = Adoption of modular technology for urban planning and architecture

Match the following architects with their contributions to Archigram:

David Greene = Housing that looked like computers and Monsters, dinosaurs or robots and space ships Peter Cook = Plug-in-City is a mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be slotted Warren Chalk = Housing that looked like computers and Monsters, dinosaurs or robots and space ships Dennis Crompton = Plug-in-City is a mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be slotted

Match the following concepts with their descriptions in Archigram's work:

Living City exhibition = Collected images from any part of the city and presented them in a new way with a message that was new to architecture Plug-in-City = Mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be slotted Modular technology = Experimented with by the group to introduce mobility through the environment and space capsules Glamorous, high-tech future = Seductive vision offered by Archigram's projects

Match the following terms with their meanings as used by Archigram:

Software = The city was seen not as architecture (hardware), but as people and their 'situations' Pop iconography = Accepted images such as spaceman, superman, robotman, and woman presented in a new way Expendable products = The home, the whole city, furniture - all things within the house are all the same and interact with man at the same level Modular technology = Experimented with by the group to introduce mobility through the environment and space capsules

Match the following architects with their unique design concepts for Archigram:

Warren Chalk = Housing that looked like computers and Monsters, dinosaurs or robots and space ships Ron Herron = Housing that looked like computers and Monsters, dinosaurs or robots and space ships Dennis Crompton = Plug-in-City is a mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be slotted Peter Cook = Walking dinosaur - designed to appear on public roads

Match the following terms with their descriptions in Archigram's work:

Living City exhibition = Collected images from any part of the city and presented them in a new way with a message that was new to architecture Plug-in-City = Mega-structure with no buildings, just a massive framework into which dwellings in the form of cells or standardized components could be slotted Modular technology = Experimented with by the group to introduce mobility through the environment and space capsules Glamorous, high-tech future = Seductive vision offered by Archigram's projects

Explore the impact of technology on urban planning and architecture, and how it is shaping various aspects of communities. Learn about the evolving trends from the 60s and 70s to current times, and the need for cities to adapt to enable quick and easy accessibility to all parts of the city.
