The celebrated modernist architect and innovator of social housing, Neave Brown, has sadly passed away following his battle with cancer.Born in New York in 1929, he was best known for his post-war housing schemes in London and his investment in the local community. Recognised for his pioneering efforts and concern for the well-being of the residents of social housing, Neave Brown was presented with the RIBA?s 2018 Gold Medal for Architecture last October, on behalf of HRH The Queen.Ben Derbyshire, RIBA President, paid tribute to Brown who unfortunately left us on the 9th of January.?The architecture community has lost a giant,? said Derbyshire, ?he showed us how intellectual rigour, sensitive urbanism, his supreme design skill and determination could deliver well-being to the local community he served so well in Camden.?"Neave's contribution to architecture will not be forgotten. His vision and ideals live on in the generations of architects, whom he has inspired. All his UK projects are listed. That they are loved by their communities is clear.?
Designed in 1968 by Neave Brown of Camden Council's Architects Department, this multi-family, 8-storey council housing estate, properly known as the Alexandra and Ainsworth estate, was built between 1972 and 1979.. Image ...
