De Peter Yi is the 2018-2019 Walter B. Sanders Fellow at the Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. Peter is an architect and designer, working independently and collectively on cross-cultural sites in the contemporary city.

Peter holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Michigan, where he received the Wallenberg Award, and a Master of Architecture from Rice University, where he received the AIA Henry Adams Certificate and the William D. Darden Thesis Award. He has practiced with Studio Gang Architects in Chicago, WW Architecture in Houston, and 1100 Architect in New York, designing several housing and adaptive reuse projects both built and under construction. In 2016, Peter was awarded a Graham Foundation Grant for the forthcoming publication Building Subjects, a proposal for housing's anachronistic parts.
