Sir Peter Cook made a presentation capturing 50 years of his exceptional work of designing spaces and furniture called ‘Dream of Stuff’ to the students. In his presentation he spoke about his observations, stories, experiences, cultures and people that have inspired his work. He was knighted in 2007 by the Queen for his services to architecture and teaching.
When asked about his approach to design – “My approach to designing is that it starts with a structure because you cannot plan something and hope it works, you have to have an organizational structure in place. And then I have a general strategy. Just like in a battle, it is not just about positioning things, it has to take term of the unlikely, things like it might rain, the guy might miss his aim and so on. Similarly urban design is a mix of dynamics, strategy, social economics and then being prepared to deviate. Like all of you have two eyes and a nose but you all look different.”
