March 9, 2011 | Video Lecturer:

He discusses Las Vegas as an adult playground. He characterizes Toyo Ito as another architect to continues to play with architecture. Cook discusses architecture as “other than as a solid object.” He describes the intentions of architecture and certain ingredients that make it more socially responsible than other forms of art. Cook discusses Japanese history and culture. Cook maintains that one of the most important aspects of architecture is the ongoing global conversation about it. He lays down as a rule that the most important thing an architect can do is hang out with “the right people.” Cook talks about competition that promotes discovery instead of hindering progress. Cook describes how he continues to look for innovative ways of deploying architecture. Cook contrasts places that seek out stimulation, and places that avoid it. He notes how the terms “weird” and “strange” are appropriate definitions of schools like the Bartlett and SCI-Arc.
