Duncan Baker Brown
BSc. DipArch FRSA ARB RIBA
Duncan is a practicing architect, academic, environmental activist and author of ‘The Re-Use Atlas: a designer’s guide towards a circular economy’ published by RIBA.
He has practised, researched, and taught around issues of sustainable development and closed-looped systems for more than 25 years. He recently founded BakerBrown, a research-led architectural practice and consultancy, created to address the huge demands presented by the climate and ecological emergency as well as the challenges of designing in a post-COVID world.
Over the years Duncan’s practices (and academic ‘live’ projects) have won numerous accolades including RIBA National Awards and a special award from The Stephen Lawrence Prize for the Brighton Waste House - the prize money has since been used to set up a student prize for circular, closed loop design at the University of Brighton where Duncan teaches.
