Professor Sir Peter Hall: Role Model

Guest editor: Michael Hebbert
17 Mar 2015

This issue of Built Environment, written by students and colleagues, celebrates the life and work of Peter Hall. The fourteen contributors cover the entire span of his career from the moment he joined LSE in 1965 through to the intense research activity of his last summer months in 2014. It’s extraordinary to be reminded of the scope of his life-work, the variety of roles he modelled for successive generations of students and colleagues, and the ramifications of his legacy. The papers may be accessed here.
