New Delhi-based Gallery Espace is currently exhibiting Drawings by Sir Peter Cook

The gallery along with Architecture Discipline, a multiple award winning architectural practice based in New Delhi, have collaborated to present a selection of works by architectural icon Sir Peter Cook. Known as a leading figure in the architectural world, and in particular as the creator of concepts & drawings for avant-garde architectural projects, the gallery presents a selection of Cook’s drawings from 1960-2000.

By displaying these works, the gallery and Architecture Discipline hope to provide inspiration to architects of the future. The exhibition features works such as the 1963 Montreal Tower: a work made before the existence of the Archigram Group, which led to Sir Peter being awarded the Royal Gold Medal of the Royal Institute of British Architects. The Exhibition also features works from the avant-garde group. Though never built, their projects and ideas provoked fascinating debates, combining architecture, technology and society.
