Peter Cook Part One The Lost Art Of Architectural Composition The Ingredients

February 4, 2011 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

Sir Peter Cook describes his talk as a the first of three related lectures. While acknowledging the attractive simplicity of dogmatic rules, Cook argues instead for the idiosyncratic, the irregular, and deviations. Cook describes the leftover infrastructure of urban environments as layered relics of past organizational systems. Cook stresses the importance of clearly communicating ones intentions through innovative detailing and construction methods. Cook stresses simplicity, style, and similarity, illustrating them with an entry in a tower competition. Cook concludes with a discussion of some ongoing projects in his office, including educational buildings in Vienna and Australia, relating their design to some of the qualities he has been discussing.

Michael Rotondi introduces Peter Cook, who discusses his current work in the context of his work with Archigram. Cook touches on the usefulness of silliness, the cyclical nature of life and architecture, and the importance of atmosphere as equal to, or greater than, most other architectural concerns. He illustrates his points by presenting a combination of his own work, including the Kunsthaus Graz (under construction), and projects by others linked to his own interests.
