Biography 

Peter Rose, FAIA, FRAIC, is a leader in the architectural design profession. Since beginning his practice in 1978, Rose has received awards for residential, institutional, and urban design projects. His work ranges from large urban interventions and cultural institutions, such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture, to innovative residential projects, including the Housing Tower at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health. His projects are united by sensitivity to materials, details, and the relationship between the built environment, landscape, and inhabitants.

Additionally, Rose has engaged in research and education. As adjunct professor of architecture at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design from 1991 to 2012, Rose conceptualized and led several research-intensive studios, developing sustainable designs for tuberculosis clinics in Ethiopia and a Boston Subway Master Plan, among others. Rose has taught at Princeton University, McGill University, and the University of Toronto, and frequently serves on student design reviews and related symposia.

Rose earned MArch and BA degrees from Yale University. His work has been published in Progressive Architecture, Architectural Record, ARCHITECT Magazine, Architectural Digest, Harvard Design Magazine, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and others. His designs have been exhibited internationally, including at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Venice Biennale.
