Peter Cook - The Moment of Invention in Architecture
Peter Cook RA, the joint Professor of Architecture in the Royal Academy Schools, proposes that the act of drawing is the closest parallel to the conceptual moment in architecture. Whatever values and whatever responses are made, architecture is about space, form, displacement and deployment. The potential of the drawing is to prioritise, emphasise, distil or even ignore. This lecture relates these issues to the work of Lebbeus Woods, C.J Lim, Zaha Hadid and others as well as that of the speaker.
