Pierre Burquel (born 1982 in Ichocan, Peru) is an independent architect based in Brussels, graduated at La Cambre in 2010.

With CENTRAL he presented the project EUROPA at the 2018 Venice architecture biennale and the project Virtuous Situations from the Industrial Past and some Ideas for the “Climatic Metropolis” to Come at the first Architecture and Landscape Biennial in Versailles, 2019.
