Peter Keyes teaches architectural design studios and courses in the areas of housing, place, and culture at the University of Oregon, where he is an associate professor in the Department of Architecture.
A native New Yorker, Keyes received his B.A. in architectural history from Harvard University and his M.Arch from Columbia University. He practiced architecture on the East Coast for a decade before moving to Oregon, where his architectural work has moved towards design/build, and his research into housing typology.
The most recent photos in his article “Still Life with Cone, Standpipe, Caution Tape” were taken during the past year, as he traveled around the country in a small trailer with his 14-year-old daughter. Hundreds more of these barricades can be seen on his website, Transitory Barricades.
