Abstract:

Peter Wilson's early interests in figuration, metaphor and narrative in architecture are most clearly illustrated in sites selected for his unit projects and competition entries completed while at the Architectural Association in the 1970s and '80s. Whether outwith or within cities, Wilson's concerns revolved primarily around the orchestration of a collection of expressive objects, on various tableaux themselves embodying, a priori, charged and original poetics. These preoccupations have largely extended to and variously informed the work of Arkitekturb├╝ro Bolles+Wilson, the M├╝nster based practice started in 1987 by Wilson and his partner Julia Bolles.
