Perry Kulper’s Drawn Cosmologies at Greenwich

Assemblies: Drawn Cosmologies by Perry Kulper

Perry Kulper’s ‘Assemblies: Drawn Cosmologies’ at the University of Greenwich brought more than a tease on representational and spatial capacities of the architectural drawing, it awarded us a daydream in colour, metaphors, and phantasies.



Perry Kulper is an architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan. In a prior life, he was a SCI-Arc faculty member for 17 years and held visiting teaching positions at Penn and ASU. After graduate studies at Columbia University he worked in the offices of Eisenman/Robertson, Robert A.M. Stern and Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown before moving to Los Angeles.

His primary interests include: the generative potential of architectural drawing; the different spatial opportunities offered by using diverse design methods in design practices; and in broadening the conceptual range by which architecture contributes to our cultural imagination.

In 2013 he published Pamphlet Architecture 34, ‘Fathoming the Unfathomable: Archival Ghosts and Paradoxical Shadows’ with friend and collaborator Nat Chard. Recently he has ventured into the digital world, attempting to get a handle on ‘cut + paste’ operations in Photoshop.

Fantastic beasts have also been on his mind.
