London Eight: Curated by Sir Peter Cook

The Southern California Institute of Architecture announced London Eight, curated by renowned English architect Sir Peter Cook.

A founding member of the 1960s futurist group Archigram and a visiting faculty member at SCI-Arc, Cook invited five architects who currently teach at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, where Cook was professor from 1990 to 2005, to participate in an exhibition at the SCI-Arc Library Gallery.

These architects were then asked to select a "protege" whom they had mentored through their studies at the Bartlett to exhibit alongside their own work in the gallery.

The exhibition results in a rich investigation of exploratory architecture in two- and three-dimensions, where the subtle pedagogy of the Bartlett has crafted and enabled "indulgent" formal objects and drawn imagery; yet individuality reigns supreme.
