Scope and Content

File documents a competition proposal by Cedric Price, in collaboration with Archigram, Per Kartvedt, and Tony Dugdale for a combined university / community centre, in Trondheim, Norway. The programme called for a congress centre, hotel rooms, sauna, and swimming pool. The final design proposal is described in the file: "Due to economy achievable in warming and ventilation through large scale air movements it was found possible to enclose 3 conventional partitions within an enormous 'greenhouse'. Giant snow sweepers on the roof combined with heated central 'open' swimming pools are additional artificial environment manipulators'. Conceptual sketches explore the development of the site in section. Relationships between areas are shown in color: "delight" in blue; "servicing" in yellow; and "escape" in orange. Drawings also include diagrammatic plans and sections. Many original conceptual sketches by both Cedric Price and Archigram are included within the textual records. Material in this file was produced between 1967 and 1974, but predominantly between 1972 and 1974.

Some drawings and notes in this file are attributed to Archigram, Per Kartvedt, and Tony Dugdale.

File contains design development drawings, presentation drawings, photographic materials, models, and textual records.
