A complete redesign of Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester centres on a large walk through interactive foun­tain court and new pavilion building by Tadao Ando.

Peter was an integral part of the design team with a re­sponsibility for lighting exploring how lighting can decisively contribute to a welcoming and stimulating night-time public realm, turning Piccadilly Gardens into a vibrant people orientated space in a 24 hour city.

The project was featured in the Groundswell exhibition on constructing the contemporary landscape held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2005. The exhibition looked at creative activity in landscape design found 23 outstanding projects throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
