Friday 05 Jul 2013

With 285 miles to go, the P2P team stop in the Big Apple for a chat with WAN

WAN’s Jim Davis was able to catch up with Peter Murray, Chairman of NLA: London’s Centre for Built Environment, who had just arrived in New York City having led a charity bike ride across America en route from Portland, OR to Portland Place in Central London.

The epic ride is to raise money for Architect’s charities, to discover more about different cities approaches to infrastructure and Peter discusses all this and the highs and lows of team morale over an extraordinary journey.

Listen to Jim's interview with Peter Murray here.

Peter will be returning to New York city to host discussions at WAN’s major event – World Architecture Day on Monday 07 October, this year’s theme: Towards 8 Billion, Housing the Next Generation.
