Between 1989 and 2011, Dr. Peter Magyar, RIBA, CAHA, served at three universities in the position of the head of the architecture department, or as in Florida Atlantic, as a founding director. His strong belief is that teaching has to have a constantly tested and renewed source of direct participation in the actual practice of architecture, hence his many projects, the results of consulting with noted firms or entering competitions. Some of these activities didn’t reach conclusion, but collected in this book, may provide applicable insights. Both his practice and his academic activities are conducted on the international level. His master and doctor of architecture degrees are from the Technical University of Budapest.
