Published to accompany the exhibition Peter Salter: Drawing Walmer Yard at Piano Nobile marking the launch of Peter Salter's first residential building in Britain, this fully illustrated catalogue presents a selection of Salter's extraordinary drawings for the project. With a new essay by Peter Salter on his drawings and an introduction by architectural associate Fenella Collingridge, the catalogue reveals the intrinsic importance of Salter's drawings to the process of his architectural practice.
Peter Salter AADipl (Hons) was educated at and taught at the AA for 13 years, in Intermediate and Diploma School. In the early years of his career he worked for Alison and Peter Smithson, and his work attempts to carry the convictions of that practice. In 2004 he was jointly awarded the Annie Spinks prize for Excellence in Teaching, reaffirmed by the award of an Honorary Fellow of the RIBA in 2012. Following seven years as Head of School (Architecture) at the University of East London, he was appointed Professor of Architecture at the Welsh School of Architecture, Cardiff, where he still teaches. His early built projects were in Japan, including the Inami Woodcarving Museum and Kamiichi Pavilion; Walmer Yard is his first building in the UK.
