Lecture Series | Sir Peter Cook


This week EUSAS welcomes Sir Peter Cook.

Professor Sir Peter Cook is the co-founder of Archigram, director of CRAB Studio, former Chair of The Bartlett School of Architecture and author of many essential architecture books, such as Drawing - the Motive Force of Architecture. A graduate of the Bournemouth College of Art and the Architectural Association in London, he has been a pivotal figure within the architectural world for 50 years.

His work has been recognised with many awards and titles, including the Royal Gold Medal of the RIBA jointly awarded to the Archigram Group in 2004, a Knighthood for his services to architecture in 2007 and an honorary Doctorate of Technology by the University of Lund granted in 2011. He is also a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters of France and a member of the Royal Academy of Arts.

CRAB Studio was founded in 2006 after Sir Peter Cook and Gavin Robotham curated the British Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. CRAB studio has become world renowned for delivering complex and innovative buildings and landscapes at a variety of scales. Their most recently completed building and Peter Cook’s first built project in the UK, Drawing Studio for Arts University Bournemouth in 2016, has won many awards including a RIBA National Award 2016.
