Earlier this month AN West Coast Editor Sam Lubell joined Sir Peter Cook and Woodbury University students and faculty at WUHO Gallery in Hollywood for Drawing Room: An Audience with Sir Peter Cook, an exhibition of thesis and degree projects and an informal discussion.
Cook, outspoken as always, lauded Woodbury’s experimental, outsider nature, the ability of drawing to “elevate the conversation through the unknown,” and “nutters” everywhere. His inspiration was omnipresent, with exceptionally-drawn (or drawn and combined with computer rendering), technologically-driven projects—rethinking housing, science facilities, humanitarian architecture, and so on— that paid homage to his quirky aesthetic. The exhibition was curated by Woodbury professors Peter Culley and Berenika Boberska.Gabriela Colmenares, degree project (Gabriela Colmenares) Brian Diaz degree project, plan detail.
