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.

Peter Barber Architects (PBA) are an award-winning architecture and urban design practice working on a number of ground-breaking urban social housing projects. At the heart of all PBA’s work is the belief that architecture can create the potential for social action and activity.

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 an 4 storeys high wrapped around London.

Peter Barber Architects won the Royal Academy Grand Award for Architecture in 2015 and have twice been UK Housing Architect of the year. In 2016, the practice’s ‘Holmes Road Homeless Studios’ won the ‘New London Architecture’s Overall Building of the Year’ and was one of the Guardian’s top 10 buildings worldwide for that year.
