Peter Cook discusses his background, own work and collaborations with Christine Hawley and others.

He discusses built and non-built proposals for the invented city of Arcadia, the competition project Shadow House, an alternative museum for Frankfurt and projects for Paris and Oslo.

Cook discusses a folly in Osaka, a project for a glass museum and an apartment block in Germany and a movable canopy project in Frankfurt.

Cook reflects on the ideas of metamorphosis and layering in his work, where buildings adopt different moods and characters depending on their orientation and function.
