Bishop named Architecture Centre Network chairman

Peter Bishop, deputy chief executive of the London Development Agency, has been appointed chairman of Architecture Centre Network.

Bishop, who was appointed as the first design director for London DGA in 2006, and in 2008 as group director of the agency, is responsible for design, land development and its environmental, housing and public space programmes.

Over the past 20 years, he has servers as planning director in four different Central London Boroughs and has worked on major projects including Canary Wharf, the development of the BBC's campus at White City and the Kings Cross development, one of the largest and most complex site in London. Peter lectures and teaches extensively and is a visiting professor at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Nottingham Trent University.

"Good design should not be considered as a luxury,” said Bishop. “Architecture centres play a pivotal role in supporting individuals and communities in shaping their local areas to form tightly knit, lasting and vibrant places. I look forward to my new role with the Architecture Centre Network to support their work and place them in the heart of the new emerging urban agenda."
