Who has heard of an architect holding a "night with" event at the 1,100-seat Hackney Empire theater in London --
Then leave the stage to 10-
Standing ovation for a minute
But Brown (inset below)
Died last month at the age of 88, an architect of global importance.
In October, just months before Brown's death, he won the Royal RIBA Gold Medal from his British counterpart, the highest honor in the construction industry.
Right after that, America.
Born after 80, he was dragged out because he sold out in the Empire's "just one night.
So, at the end of 1960, when the solution that was accepted for public housing was to build a brutal high-rise apartment, what did Brown do and come up with something entirely new --
Low hanging, high density House in ziggurat style (Tilt forward)
Not seen since ancient Babylon.
This form of housing does not waste space, ticked the council's box for the necessary density, but also provides relatively low space for residents
Hanging presence, open living space, private garden balcony area, playground courtyard below, and a clear view of their buzzing community life above and below.
Brown's most famous plan is the Alexandra Road Manor, completed in 1976, which has two rows of terraces, each row of concrete houses, both leaning towards each other, and tilt towards the playground yard and the curved sidewalk.
This was one of the few public housing schemes in the brutal era, and was praised by local residents today.
In announcing his award, RIBA said: "Brown believes that every family should have its own front door, direct access to the routes and street networks that make up the city, as well as its own private outer space, open to the sky in the form of a rooftop garden or terrace.
Brown combines these qualities at Alexandra Road.
"The evidence that Neave Brown's housing had also had an impact here at that time was designed by Henry J Lyon for the Grove house in millstown, Dublin, and also completed in 1976, built in ziggurat style on the same balcony;

In Ireland in 1970, the Grove tower brought the modernist Babylonian sky garden to Dublin, causing a big sensation --
As residents move in, they plant their space so that flowers and leaves can walk down the building happily.
For those lucky enough to live on it, there is a huge sloping window, wall, Skylight to let the light flow in.
Before the boom, Dublin apartments were usually built and designed for those who had come down from a big house rather than the first deal --
Buyer or landlord.
As a result, they are the same size as a small or ordinary house with a superior location and a better building --
In a way, plans like D4's Grove building and D4's Hazeldene still have high demand today.
