In this role Peter is currently leading the design teams on projects including high rise towers, large mixed use urban building complexes, hotels, corporate headquarters and cultural buildings. Within China Peter is working with colleagues to establish a sustainability thread which connects development policy, city planning, infrastructure, urban design, building design, construction and operations.
