Peter Cook



First and only printing from 1989 of this a+u Extra Edition volume dedicated to the work of Peter Cook – English architect, writer, creator of the “Plug-In City” and central founding member of Archigram, an avant-garde architectural group formed in the 1960s – based at the Architectural Association, London and seen as forefathers of radical architecture, leading the way for groups such as Archizoom and Superstudio.

This book is entirely comprised of Cook’s incredible, unique and highly influential neofuturistic renderings, airbrush paintings and collages for designs of hypothetical architectural projects, environment design, domestic landscapes and city plans. Through exquisite sci-fi pop technical drawings, Cook created radical alternatives to cities, houses and other architectural archetypes. A large majority of the works never appearing in any other book. Beautifully printed in Japan with vivid full-colour illustrations from cover to cover, including many fold-outs. Texts in English and Japanese. A very lovely volume on this visionary architect and thinker.
