Peter Carter (1927–2017) was a thoughtful architect concerned with creating an agreeable and humane environment for workers in industrial and corporate environments. Carter was born in London. Before he was ten years old, frequent visits to the Crystal Palace, Sydenham, where his father was a member of the festival choir, were determinant in his early decision to be an architect so that he could “one day design and build theatres.”

Peter Carter was author of "Mies van der Rohe at Work, 1958," project architect for exhibitions on Mies van der Rohe in St. Louis (1961) and New York (1963), and for major built work in Mies van der Rohe’s office: the Toronto Dominion Centre in Toronto (1970) and Mansion House Square in London (unbuilt1971). Returning to England in 1974, Carter’s Hambro Life Assurance (1980) and Allied Dunbar Tricenter(1991) were both realized in Swindon.
