Peter Cook discusses Archigram and identifies Gunnar Asplund’s Paradise Café at the 1930 Stockholm Exhibition as the building got him interested in architecture.

Stressing the necessity of colleagues who are “more audacious than one’s self,” Cook discusses his Plug-in City (1964), Vegetated Lump (1972/3), and Sponge building (1975). He discusses arcadia, the portmanteau and mesh.
