Peter Exley & Architecture is Fun:
Elevating the Design of Play Environments

Peter Exley takes fun seriously. Peter is co-founder of Architecture is Fun, an internationally recognized practice of architecture for children, families, and communities, which elevates the standard of design for learning and play environments. Architecture Is Fun uses a multi-disciplinary approach to create safe, engaging projects that immerse children and families in play and exploration. As the direct point of contact for project design and development, Peter leads the design effort, from initial concept through project realization.

As a champion of childhood, Peter creates archetypical learning environments and architecture for children that are recognized for fun, education, accessibility, play and family interaction that they provide.  Through his practice, Peter nurtures a consciousness of design as a lifelong expectation and pursuit.

Architecture is Fun received the HUE Award from Benjamin Moore.  Listen to Sharon and Peter Exley chat about heroic materials, interior architecture, design, the intersection of art and science and more.
