A philosophy major with an arts degree, even as a university student Peter enjoyed critical thinking and discussions of right and wrong. But he didn’t want to just talk about his ideals; he wanted to do something big with them. That same drive and determination to make a positive difference is what shaped Peter’s entire architectural career, as well as his position on protecting the environment.
Peter sees architecture as the ideal mix of two of his passions: protecting the environment and effecting change. Through his work, he’s been able to influence how people live, the way they treat the environment, and the way cities are formed. In many ways, his passion and track record for making better buildings defined modern-day sustainable architecture—first throughout Canada, then throughout the world. Today, his work continues to inspire new generations of architects and environmental advocates.
