About this title:

Synopsis: Busby: Architecture's New Edges takes readers where the design industry is trending, beyond traditional boundaries. Blending first-hand commentary with examples and project summaries, the book explores key projects that have helped Peter Busby earn his role as a leader in the regenerative design movement. Busby presents details and philosophies that demonstrate how we are changing the nature of the design profession and the built environment. Informative, inspirational, and candid, Busby: Architecture's New Edges is required reading for anyone interested in the future of the profession.

About the Author: Peter Busby, a founding member of the Canada Green Building Council, is internationally recognized for his contributions to architecture and planning. His award-winning portfolio embodies his philosophy of social responsibility and commitment to sustainable design. Since opening his Vancouver practice in 1984, Peter's body of work has gained a reputation for design excellence and innovation, becoming a powerful catalyst in the growth of the green architecture movement in North America and abroad. After merging his firm with Perkins+Will in 2004, Peter became a driving force across the company, compelling its industry-leading sustainable design initiatives. In 2012, Peter relocated to be the Managing Director of the Perkins+Will San Francisco office, bringing his focus on sustainable communities and regenerative design to all Perkins+Will West Coast offices, directing teams working on projects locally and internationally. Peter's dedication to design advocacy remains steadfast; he lectures frequently at academic institutions and professional engagements around the world.

Peter holds a bachelor's degree in architecture from the University of British Columbia and a bachelor's degree in political science from the University of Toronto. In recognition of his professional and community contributions, Peter was admitted to the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) in 1997. In 2005 Peter was invested as a member of the Governor General's Order of Canada, the highest civilian award in Canada that recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community, and service to the nation. In 2008, he was conferred an honorary doctorate in science by Ryerson University and in 2011 he was named a Cascadia Fellow. In 2013, he was elevated to LEED Fellow, a designation of the U.S. Green Building Council, which recognizes exceptional contributions to the green building community as well as significant achievements within a growing community of sustainable design professionals. Peter was the recipient of the 2014 RAIC Gold Medal, an honor that recognizes a significant and lasting contribution to Canadian architecture. He has over 200 design awards to his credit, including six Governor's General Awards, thirteen Lieutenant Governor's Awards, two AIA COTE awards, and many sustainable design, wood design, and innovation awards.
