Sir Peter Cook will present a selection from his 50 years of projects, emphasizing his recent work with Gavin Robotham and the CRAB studio, with forays into the seaside, kiosks, not-quite-architecture architecture, the continual observation of people, cartoons, the essential silliness of daily life; and the construction of “cheerful” buildings (Graz Kunsthaus), blue buildings, Vienna Law Faculty, Australian architecture school, the Archigram memory lingering, and a vehement disinterest in abstraction. Sir Peter Cook, a Director of CRAB, the Cook-Robotham Architecture Bureau in London, is the 2015 Kenzo Tange Visiting Professor.
