Architectural Lineaments: Drawing and Narrative in the Work of Peter Wilson

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in conference


Peter Wilson is one of the most internationally significant architects and architectural educators of the past 40 years. Studying at the Architectural Association in London in the 1970s, he subsequently became a key studio master at the school. His work is marked by great formal sophistication and sensitivity, motivated by an intense interest in the imaginative and figurative possibilities of architecture. Together with his partner, Julia Bolles, he has realised an extremely important sequence of projects over the last decades in Europe and beyond.

‘Architectural Lineaments’ is the first international symposium to focus on Peter Wilson’s work and we are delighted to welcome an array of eminent speakers to Edinburgh to discuss it. Peter’s architectural drawings are renowned and so it is very appropriate that the event is being organised as a collaboration between ESALA and the Drawing Matter Trust.
