Cook, Peter
Professor Sir Peter Cook RA is a notable English architect, lecturer and writer on architectural subjects. He was a founder of Archigram, and was knighted in 2007 by the Queen for his services to architecture and teaching. He is also a Royal Academician and a Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the French Republic. His achievements with Archigram were recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2004, when the group was awarded the Royal Gold Medal.
He continues to curate, organise and exhibit around the world: in Seoul, LA and Cyprus, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and Design Museum, London as well as in castles, sheds and garages.
He is a Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art, London. Cook?s professorships include those of the Royal Academy, University College, London and the Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste (St├Ądelschule) in Frankfurt-Main, Germany. Construction of his arts building, the Kunsthaus Graz (aka 'The Friendly Alien') in Graz, Austria (with Colin Fournier) brought his work to a wider public (he is also involved with construction of the Vienna Business and Economics University?s new law faculty).
Cook has also built in Osaka, Nagoya, Berlin and Madrid. His continuing work as a lecturer takes him to cultural institutions around the world, where many have heard him expound (among other subjects) upon his love affair with the slithering, the swarming and the spooky.
He practices with Gavin Robotham as CRAB studio.
