Alice Brown studied architecture at Cambridge and Harvard Universities, after which she worked for a number of renowned architects including Sandy Wilson, Eric Parry and Richard MacCormac. On winning a competition for work to a 19th century prison building in Sweden, she set up in practice with Robert Loader, later going on to establish AAB architects in 2000.
Much of Alice’s work involves works to existing buildings. She is an accredited conservation architect and chair of the local conservation area advisory committee. She helped to set up Climate Emergency Camden, a coalition of local environmental groups committed to addressing the climate and ecological crisis, and in 2019 was awarded a RIBA research grant to investigate housing estate renewal strategies to prioritise embodied energy and biodiversity.
