About

agm provokes informal discussion and debate by and for architecture students and up and coming designers. Founded in 2015 as an Instagram account by Melbourne School of Design students, stemming from the addition of architecture + instagram, @archigram_melbourne. Our name also draws reference to the avant-garde British architectural group Archigram, architecture + telegram, their provocative broadcasts and radical aims for architecture. Sharing in this spirit is our core aim of “broadcasting all things architecture”. 

 

The self published, hand made nature of the agm magazine volumes along with its free distribution at the annual Melbourne School of Design exhibition in an approachable makeshift format (that doesn’t take itself too seriously), encouraging architectural discourse in our audience beyond the classroom.
