Peter Cook On Paper
English architect and writer Sir Peter Cook, renowned for his free-thinking spirit translated into architectural lines and shapes, is perhaps most well-known as the co-founder of the avant-garde architectural group Archigram in the 1960s. A selection of his drawings is offered here as part of the exhibition series ‘Louisiana On Paper’ at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. Cook believes that visions of the future – whatever it might offer – are most clearly expressed and can best be discussed in drawings. In his work we encounter kaleidoscopic colours and spiralling shapes, voluntary architectural mutations, and twisting and turning buildings transforming into escapist dreamscapes.
