Strategies Across Scale: architect Peter Rose lectures at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design

Via a series of projects ranging in scale from the shed to the master plan, Peter Rose’s lecture entitled “Strategies Across Scale” will address issues relating to a design process that is research-based, highly site-specific, and strategic in intent. Sponsored by bulthaup, this lecture takes place at 6:30pm on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 in Room 103 of the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto.

Peter Rose is a recognized innovator in architectural design. Since beginning his practice in Montreal in 1978, Peter has received numerous awards for institutional, residential and urban design projects. The scale of his work ranges from large urban interventions – including the Old Port of Montreal Waterfront Master Plan, the Low2No Master Plan for Jätkäsaari, Finland, and major cultural institutions such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture. All are united by his sensitivity to materials and the relationship between the built environment and the landscape.

In addition to his professional practice, Peter has been intensively engaged in architectural research and education. As Adjunct Professor of Architecture at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design from 1991 to 2012, Peter conceptualized and led a wide range of research-intensive studios, developing innovative and sustainable designs for tuberculosis clinics in Ethiopia, a Boston Subway Master Plan, and an Allston Housing Master Plan, among others. Peter has also taught at Princeton University, McGill University, and the University of Toronto, and frequently serves on student design reviews and related symposia.

Peter received the Master in Architecture degree and Bachelor of Arts degree from Yale University. He is a member of the Boston Society of Architects, the American Institute of Architects, and the Ordre des Architectes du Québec, and is a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. His work has been published in Harvard Design Magazine, Architectural Record, ARCHITECT Magazine, Architectural Digest, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, Casabella, and others. His work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, and the Venice Biennale.
