Peter Eisenman is an American architect, writer and educator whose work has long been informed by reading architecture through a wide range of cultural, intellectual and philosophical references. Famous during the late 1960s for his pioneering houses from his days among the New York Five, he has since then remained at the forefront of architectural discourse through the buildings he has produced (most recently the City of Culture in Galicia), the numerous books he has written (Ten Canonical Buildings, 2008) and the lectures and courses he has taught (currently as Louis I Khan Professor of Architecture at Yale).
