Peter Barber Architects
Peter discusses the political and ideological context of the work carried out at Peter Barber Architects. He investigates both completed projects such as Donnybrook Quarter in London and theoretical schemes including his street-based, linear city, Hundred Mile City.
Peter Barber is a Lecturer and Reader in Architecture at the University of Westminster, and founder of architectural practice Peter Barber Architects, which he established in 1989. Prior to this, he worked with Richard Rogers, Will Alsop and Jestico+Whiles.
He has guest lectured at a number of global institutions, including The Bartlett School of Architecture, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Oxford University, the Architectural League in New York and various universities in Helsinki, Pretoria, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Munich, Genoa, Istanbul, Oslo, Colombo, and Santiago.
Peter has won numerous awards for his projects including the Royal Academy Grand Prize for Architecture in 2016, and has been described by The Independent as one of the UK’s leading urbanists. He was recently invited by the government to lead a discussion on "Designing for Better Public Spaces" with a team of top built environment professionals.
