Further information http://www.dundee.ac.uk/architecture/staff/lholm/ Prof. Peter Carl is leader of PhD Programme in Architecture, the CASS Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan University His research interest is to understand architectural and urban order - how they contribute to, and are part of, cultural conditions and possibilities. Architectural and urban order address areas of reality complementary to the great technical sophistication and rapid historical change so prominent in current culture; and this complementarity is itself an important insight into how we are able to preserve orientation in the cultural complexity.
