Description

The fourth lecture in this five-part series:

Professor Peter Bishop, University College London and Allies & Morrison Architects - The city as mirage: designing for impermanence in an era of change and flux

Peter Bishop

Organised in conjunction with UL’s Kemmy Business School and the support of LIT and Limerick Council, the six-part series of public lectures will examine a wide variety of topical issues like the impact of Brexit, immigration, military interventions, Irish water, urban planning, Russia and lots more.

All speakers are known for their ability to invigorate a good debate and discussion and are expected to share their thoughts, insights and views on subjects relating to the central theme of ‘Peripherality and Centrality - The Centre Cannot Hold!’.

The lectures will run on Thursday evenings from 11 October to 15 November in St. Munchin’s Church. Lectures start at 8pm and admission is €10 or concessions €8 per lecture.

Proceeds from the series will be used by the Limerick Civic Trust for the restoration of St. Munchin’s Church into a military museum.

About the Speaker:

Peter is a Professor of Urban Design at The Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London and a Director at Allies and Morrison Architects.

For 25 years he was a planning director at four different Central London Boroughs, and has worked on major projects at large and complex sites in the UK, including the Canary Wharf and King’s Cross.

In 2006 he was appointed as the first Director of Design for London, the Mayor’s architecture and design studio, and in 2008 served as the Deputy Chief Executive at the London Development Agency. In 2011 he carried out a policy on behalf of the Government, “The Bishop Review”, on ways in which the quality of design in the built environment may be improved. Recent projects include master planning frameworks for Old Oak Common (High Speed 2 interchange), the Palace of Westminster, and Ansan City Centre (Korea).

Peter lectures and teaches extensively, has been a design advisor to the Mayors of London, Bucharest and Zhuhai and on the Sochi Winter Olympics Legacy project and Central Dallas regeneration. He is an honorary fellow of University College London, an honorary fellow of the RIBA, holds an honorary doctorate from the University of Kingston and is Distinguished Visiting Scholar at UTS Sydney.

His book, “The Temporary City”, explores the origins of current thinking on temporary urbanism (Routledge 2012). He also examined the political processes behind major developments in his more recent book “Planning, Politics and City Making - a case study of King’s Cross” (RIBA Publishing 2016).
