Sir Peter Cook RA (born 22 October 1936) is an English architect, lecturer and writer on architectural subjects. He was a founder of Archigram, and was knighted in 2007 by the Queen for his services to architecture and teaching. He is also a Royal Academician and a Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the French Republic. His achievements with Archigram were recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects in 2004, when the group was awarded the Royal Gold Medal.

彼得庫克爵士(1936年10月22日出生)是建築學科的英語建築師,講師和作家。 他是Archigram的創始人,並於2007年被女王授予爵位,因為他為建築和教學提供服務。 他還是法蘭西共和國的皇家院士和法國共和國藝術委員會(Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres)。 他在Archigram的成就得到了英國皇家建築師學會2004年的認可,當時該團隊獲得了皇家金質獎章。

Peter Cook: You have to understand that I’m a very particular kind of animal both politically and in my general opinions. I’m what I would call a creative cynic. I’m an old person and I’ve seen a lot of not very good things happen. On the other hand I was privileged as a child to have free education and free college.

彼得庫克:你必須明白我在政治上和我的一般觀點中都是一種非常特殊的動物。 我就是所謂的創造性憤世嫉俗者。 我是一個老人,我看到很多不太好的事情發生了。 另一方面,作為一個孩子,我享有免費教育和免費大學的特權。
