Neave Brown obituary
Southland Institute

Neave Brown, who has died aged 88, was the architect of what is widely considered the finest housing built in Britain in the last 50 years. In the 1960s, through a series of housing projects in Camden, north London, of increasing scale - first five houses (Winscombe Street), then 72 (Fleet Road), then 522 (Alexandra Road) - he demonstrated a street-based alternative to high-rise housing that was immediately acclaimed both in Britain and abroad.
