Influential architect, educator, writer and speaker Sir Peter Cook joins us at the next RIBA Book Club to discuss his love of books and ideas. An attempt will be made to answer philosophical questions such as: How do thoughts turn into conversation and then text and get shared in the book? How does he combine images and narrative when writing? When do images need words and vice versa?
Sir Peter Cook has been a pivotal figure within the architectural world for over 50 years. He was a founder of the Archigram Group, who were jointly awarded the Royal Gold Medal of the RIBA in 2004. Former Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts and the Bartlett, Sir Peter Cook is currently Emeritus Professor at University College London, The Royal Academy of Arts and the Frankfurt Staedelschule. He is also a practising architect, and is Director of CRAB Studio, which he founded in 2006 with co-Director Gavin Robotham.
