RIBA Reveals Shortlist for Neave Brown Award for Housing

RIBA Reveals Shortlist for Neave Brown Award for Housing

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has revealed the shortlist for the first Neave Brown Award for Housing, named in honor of architect Neave Brown who passed away in January 2018. The four housing developments span London, Cambridge, and Norwich, and were all winners of a 2019 RIBA Regional Award.

The award was commissioned in honor of Neave Brown, a socially-motivated, modernist architect best known for designing a series of celebrated London housing estates. In 2018 he was awarded the UK’s highest honor for architecture, the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture.

In addition to being awarded a RIBA Regional Award, projects viable to be shortlisted for the Neave Brown Award must be of ten or more homes, with one third of the housing affordable, and should demonstrate evidence of meeting the challenge of housing affordability.

The winner will be announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize ceremony on Tuesday 8th October 2019.
