Peter Becht was born in Lundsberg, Sweden in 1959.
After studying at the University of Arts, Crafts, and Design in Stockholm, and Landscape Architecture at the University of Uppsala, he obtained his degree in 1989 at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
In addition to his deep respect for craft, materials, and the creation of landscape architecture, Peter’s approach has always been ‘hands-on‘. Beauty in form and shape, combined with a contemporary expression, has therefore been his ambition in bringing identity and life to spaces. Drawing on the Scandinavian tradition of architecture, Peter Becht is well-known for his commitment to the development of landscape architectural practice. He has received national and international acclaim for his work, such as the Swedish Landscape Architect Award for the World Culture Museum in Gothenburg, and the German Green Living Award for Waldbaldviertel in Cologne. From 2009 to 2019, he held the position of Associate Professor in Landscape Architecture, focusing on ‘Applied Urban Open Space Planning and Design’ at the University of Copenhagen.
Alongside his appointed role as an external examiner for The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, The Kolding School of Design, and Aarhus School of Architecture, he frequently participates in public debates and holds visiting lectures abroad.
Peter is a member of the Society of Artists at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
