Peter Frost is an artistic professor at Chalmers Architecture and Civil Engineering. Since 2010 he is a director of the Centre for healthcare architecture, CVA. Peter is active and responsible for research and development projects at CVA. He is also involved in undergraduate and graduate education in healthcare architecture. Peter's professional experiences consist of both 30 years of practical experience as a practicing architect at SWECO and operations researchers. In his research, Peter has developed a dialogue-based approach for the early stages - design dialogues. This has been put to practical use in many areas, not least in the health sector. The implementation has provided a great insight into the overriding connection of building and how to adopt dialogue-based planning processes.
