Before joining the Yale faculty, Peter de Bretteville taught at the California Institute of the Arts, at the University of California at Los Angeles, and at the University of Southern California.

He is the founder and principal of Peter de Bretteville Architect, in Hamden, Connecticut. De Bretteville’s work has focused on college and university long-term planning and building, but he also has completed such projects as civic centers and residences. He has written on a number of California architects from the 1930s, especially focusing on the building of campuses. In 2013 de Bretteville was selected by the graduating students to be awarded the Professor King-lui Wu Teaching Award. He holds a B.A. and an M.Arch. from Yale University.
