31 May - School's Out! #5 with Peter Barber
We are very happy to announce that London based architect Peter Barber will be our guest at School’s Out! #5 on the 31st of May.
Peter Barber is one of the UK's most distinguished housing architects, who has been highly praised for his attempts at tackling the pressing social issues of the day - lack of homeless shelters, lack of social housing provision - in a way that aspires to well-designed urbanism. After setting up his practice, Peter Barber Architects Ltd. in 1989, Barber's breakthrough came with his European-style street-based design for Donnybrook Quarter in east London, which won several awards and was shortlisted for the 2006 RIBA Stirling Prize.
Since then he has designed and built numerous domestic, healthcare, commercial and educational buildings, as well as lecturing at the University of Westminster.
Barber is also not adverse to grand speculative designs, with his recent proposal for the '100-mile city' garnering widespread attention for its ambitious attempt at tackling London's chronic housing shortage by wrapping a 'belt' of dense urbanism around the edgelands where London's suburbia comes to an end.
