My guest this week is Peter Rees, now Professor of Places and City Planning at The Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London.
Before returning to the Bartlett in 2014, Peter was, for nearly 30 years, the Chief Planning Officer in the City of London. Over this time he oversaw the architectural transformation of the Square Mile.
In this week’s episode we find out which architect used a model of a stealth bomber as his inspiration. We talk about egos and editing; Penarth and Powerpoint. We ask why London Mayors are obsessed with changing the design of buses.
We find out how James Stirling called meetings and discover which influential architect would like to sleep – or pretend to sleep – in meetings.
