Archigram , Founder
Professor Sir Peter Cook, founder of Archigram, former Director of London's Institute for Contemporary Art and the Bartlett School of Architecture, has been a pivotal figure within global architecture for over half a century.
Cook's achievements with radical experimentalist group Archigram have been the subject of numerous publications and exhibitions and were recognised in 2002, when members of the group were awarded the RIBA Royal Gold Medal for architecture. He is currently a Senior Fellow of the Royal College of Art and his professorships include the Royal Academy, University College London and the Hochschule fur Bildende Kunste (Staedelschule) in Frankfurt, Germany. He is a founding partner of London-based CRAB studio with Gavin Robotham. In the last few years the construction of the Kunsthaus in Graz, Austria has brought his work to wider public attention. This continues with the construction of the Vienna Business and Economics University's new Department of Law and the Soheil Abedian School of Architecture at Bond University in Queensland on Australia's Gold Coast.
