Does the convergence of architecture and communication media create a new design genre? Should we have a better understanding of the user experience and 'the narrative' when undertaking the complex process of constructing the built environment? A personal journey with reality checks.

Peter trained at the Architectural Association and has worked for the BBC, in the West End Theatre, and for design consultancy Imagination. In 1992 he helped form Land Design Studio who have built a reputation in conceptual masterplanning, design and the innovative use of communication media for museums, visitor attractions and commercial environments. This holistic approach involves collaborations and cross-overs of diverse disciplines reflected in the range of present clients that include; Anschutz Entertainment Group, Eurostar, Christies, National Parks Singapore, V&A, Natural History Museum, and the Chinese Academy of Art. He is a Visiting Professor at the University of the Arts London.
