New Now Next: Peter Bishop
Thu 11 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:30 IST
New Now Next, our popular architecture talks series, is back for a fifth year. Curated by the Irish Architecture Foundation and sponsored by ARUP, the purpose of this free event is to bring inspirational speakers to Dublin to excite and inspire audiences who are interested in the design and construction of buildings and cities. It’s about disseminating NEW Ideas, regarding contemporary issues relevant NOW that can impact on the sustainability of NEXT generations.
Next up on May 11 is Peter Bishop who over the past 25 years has 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.
