2018 RIBA Royal Gold Medal: Neave Brown
DATE: 28/9/2017
Docomomo International congratulates Neave Brown for being named 2018 laureate of RIBA Royal Gold Medal. 

"Described by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) as "a pioneer of quality public housing", Neave Brown is best known for the post-war housing he designed during his time at Camden council in north London.
His most famous scheme, the 1970s Alexandra Road estate near Swiss Cottage, features a dramatic terraced formation.

"All my work! I got it just by flying blind, I seem to have been flying all my life," said Brown following the news he will receive the Royal Gold Medal.

"The Royal Gold Medal is entirely unexpected and overwhelming. Itīs recognition of the significance of my architecture, its quality and its current urgent social relevance. Marvellous!"

Brown, 88, is the only living architect to have all of his projects in the UK heritage listed."
