Peter G. Rowe

Peter G. Rowe is an architect and teacher at the Harvard University School of Design, where he has taught urban design since 1985. His main field of research is cultural change associated with modernity and its manifestation in the built-up area of our cities. After investigating the evolution of the post-war North American city as the most sophisticated cultural product of the 20th century, Rowe is now looking for similar keys in his interpretation of how the cultural standards of Western modernity are being reformulated in the urban transformations that are currently taking place in China.
