Peter Rich Architects, Johannesburg South Africa
Alan H Rider Distinguished Lecture
Peter Rich is a principal architect at Peter Rich Architects in Johannesburg, South Africa, and a former Professor of Architecture at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. By studying indigenous tribes, especially the architecture of the Ndebele, Bantwane, Kiruwandan and the Dogon, Peter Rich’s designs are rooted in Africa and show a profound African understanding of African Culture and space making. The architecture of the practice is extremely diverse due to each project being specially formulated for the specific site and culture in which it is located.
