New Now Next: Peter Bishop

3 May 2017

The Irish Architecture Foundation’s New Now Next talk will be with Peter Bishop, kindly sponsored by Arup.

Peter Bishop has over the past 25 years been a planning director in four different Central London Boroughs and has worked on major projects including Canary Wharf, the development of the BBC’s campus at White City and the Kings Cross developments, one of the largest and most complex sites in London. He was appointed as the first Director of Design for London, the Mayor’s architecture and design studio, in 2006, the Deputy Chief Executive at the London Development Agency in 2008 and in 2011 he carried out a review of national architecture and design policy on behalf of the Government and the Design Council.

This talk titled ‘Dark Matter: Planning, Politics and the Shaping of Cities’, is not to be missed as Peter shares his work to illustrate the ideas of tactical, incremental and temporary urbanism in a fluid and ever changing world.

This talk is organised by the Irish Architecture Foundation and is sponsored by Arup.

Details: Talk begins at 6.30pm, Doors open 6pm |  Royal Irish Academy | Booking here:
