Phil Hamilton is co-Director of Peter Barber Architects, having worked with Peter for seventeen years. He has co-designed and built various award-winning projects considered to be exemplars of contemporary street-based housing. The practice believes that streets and squares are the only way to arrange urban housing, and see their projects as pieces of city, rather than housing estates. Phil will be presenting various completed and in-progress projects that demonstrate the practice’s approach, culminating in the presentation of 100 Mile City, a theoretical large-scale proposal for a circumferential edge city that surrounds London.

Peter Barber Architects are an award-winning design-orientated practice currently in the process of building hundreds of homes on complex urban and suburban sites across London. PBA are considered to be experts in achieving higher densities with medium- to low-rise buildings, maximising the number of front doors to the street, and minimising the amount of communal corridor, deck and lifts. They see their projects as celebrations of the social life of the street.
