Louisiana poster with the work, Arcadia (1978), by architect, Sir Peter Cook (b. 1936), from the exhibition, City Landscapes, at Louisiana in 2022. Peter Cook has for six decades inspired and shaped both architecture and the very thinking about architecture's role with his visionary ideas about new urban and life forms.

Drawing has always been the most important tool for the British avant-garde architect and professor. Peter Cook's drawings lie somewhere between the architect's classic drawing and the wildly fabulous sketch of the vision - and the drawings are the main product of his work as an architect.

It is in the drawing that the vision of the city and way of life of the future becomes clearest and can best be discussed, Peter Cook believes: In the drawing there is the greatest chance to shake up familiar ideas about our cities and ways of life, without being bound by thoughts of concrete materials and traditional solutions.

Peter Cook has had a few buildings erected—including the art museum in Graz, Austria. On the other hand, Cook is one of the most significant architects of the time when it comes to architecture's visions and theoretical field: the question of what architecture can and must do.

Peter Cook - Arcadia (1978) is shown as part of the exhibition series, Louisiana on Paper.
