International Lecture Series: Sir Peter Cook

May 4, 2016, 5:00pm


KADK is proud to welcome Professor Sir Peter Cook RA, founder of Archigram, former Director the Institute for Contemporary Art and Bartlett School of Architecture at University College, London. Peter Cook’s continuing work as a lecturer of considerable renown makes him a familiar voice within cultural institutions around the world, where many have enjoyed an opportunity to hear him expound upon his love affair with the slithering, the swarming and the spooky. Presenting his lecture The stuff of dreams in his own words: THE DREAM OF PHYSICAL METAMORPHOSIS THE METAMORPHOSIS OF AN IDEA THE DREAM IOF SLITHERING THE DREAM OF MELTING THE DREAM OF FLYING THE DREAM OF OVERGROWTH THE DREAM OF THE THREE DIMENSIONAL CITY THE DREAM OF THE HIDEY-HOLE THE MAGIC OF THE GADGET BEING FASCINATED BY THE UGLY AND THE SILLY PEOPLE AND STUFF He has from the very beginning made waves in architectural circles, however, it is in the last few years that the construction of his arts building in Graz, Austria (the Kunsthaus, AKA The Friendly Alien) has brought his work to a wider public, a process set to continue with the construction of the Vienna Business and Economics University’s new law faculty and Bond Univeristy in Australia’s new School of Architecture. Peter Cooks’s achievements with radical experimentalist group Archigram have been the subject of numerous publications and public exhibitions and were recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2004, when members of the group were awarded the RIBA’s highest award, the Royal Gold Medal. In 2007, Peter was knighted by the Queen for his services to architecture. The lecture is open for everybody, free og charge and held in english. 04.05.2016 17:00 Festsalen Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 53 København K
