The exhibition 'Peter Cook. Retrospective' is devoted to drawings by the famous British architect who is celebrating his 80th birthday this year. Peter Cook is without doubt one of the leading figures of the Archigram group and in 2007 was knighted for his contribution to architecture.

The exhibition shows a range of his drawings: from Archigram to CRAB, from 1968 to 2016, from Plug-In City to Hidden City. Some of his drawings are based on actual projects, such the urban planning development for Frankfurt-Oberrad in 1986, Real City: Frankfurt (which remained unrealised); many are rather experiments and utopias, such as Arcadia, Vegetated Lump and Hidden City, where the architecture was inspired by the surrounding vegetation, its beginning and end blurred, merging organically into nature.
