    I thought Peter Cook worked on the stadium? I thought it was his idea to make the thing demountable and movable?

    The Olympics would be housed in a giant blimp that travels the world. Once the Olympics are done, the blimp would retire somewhere dark in the Amazon.

    Archigram would ban all media coverage, opting for comic-book and visual-art representations of all the events. For the first time there would be more artists and cartoonists at the olympic events than sportsmen.

    Building would take the form of a personal jumpsuit. There would be no need for buildings. looking like astronauts, olympians and spectators alike would be contained in a suit of “environs” (to include: mobil devices, entertainment, waste management, air conditioning and massaging). performance would be executed with a greater degree of distance from physicality.
