Don’t miss this opportunity to join an audience with Sir Peter Cook, internationally influential architect and a founder of avant-garde architectural group Archigram. Sir Peter is Emeritus Professor at University College London, The Royal Academy of Arts and the Frankfurt Staedelschule, with recent works including the construction of his radical Art Museum in Graz, Austria (Kunsthaus).

In Melbourne to direct an intensive design studio at the Melbourne School of Design, University of Melbourne, Sir Peter joins us at MPavilion in a discussion with Professor Martyn Hook and architect Christine Phillips, offering thoughts, suggestions and provocations on the future of the 21st century city after Archigram and where architectural education is now tending. Professor Donald Bates will give an introduction.

This event is supported by Melbourne School of Design.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
