Peter Yates (1920 - 1982) Limited Edition Fine Art Prints
Peter Yates was born in Leytonstone, East London and attended Wanstead High school where he showed early promise as a painter. After school he worked as a commercial artist and a modelmaker before going on to study architecture at the Regent Street Polytechnic from 1938 to 1941. On leaving college he joined the RAF being eventually posted to Paris in 1944. There he met many influential artists including Braque, Pignon and Gertrude Stein but particularly Le Corbusier with whom he had a life-long friendship. Le Corbusier said of him 'This boy can see things'. On his return to London, he worked for Lubetkin's architecture practice and there met Gordon Ryder who became his business partner. Ryder and Yates was formed in Newcastle in 1953 and worked initially on housing projects. Other commissions soon followed and Yates' skill as an artist was used by the practice to create murals, sculptures and landscape structures. The practice expanded to a multi-disciplinary team . It's best known building is probably the Killingworth Engineering Research Station (1965-8).
