ArcSoc Lecture: Peter Barber Architects
Location: David Kier Building,Stranmillis Road, QUB
Date: 13 March 2018
Queen’s Architecture Society (ArcSoc) in partnership with the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA) is delighted to invite you to a public talk by Peter Barber Architects (PBA), an award-winning architecture and urban design practice working on a number of ground-breaking urban social housing projects.
In this lecture, Associate Director Alice Brownfield will discuss the practice’s approach to urbanism and housing with reference to award winning built schemes and a number of theoretical projects including “100 Mile City”: a radical reimagining of London’s periphery designed to re-densify suburbia with a street based, linear city a hundred miles long, 200 metres wide and 4 storeys high wrapped around London.
At the heart of all PBA’s work is the belief that architecture can create the potential for social action and activity. PBA won the Royal Academy Grand Award for Architecture in 2015 and have twice been UK Housing Architect of the year.
