In honor of American architect, writer, and lecturer MJ Long, the MJ Long Prize is awarded to a UK-based female architect that has excelled in practice. This year, the W Awards announces Alice Brownfield as the 2021 winner. Brownfield is the associate director of Peter Barber Architects and was recognized for her work on the London infill housing project, Kiln Place.
The Judges for this year's prize discuss Bronwfield's work and her success as a practitioner. "Despite the project’s high degree of complexity, there is a real sense she goes above and beyond what might be required of the brief. Even some of these small moves make a big difference in people’s everyday life. Being so committed to the issue of housing requires a lot of rigor. It is also refreshing to see research undertaken with organizations such as Part W and Action on Empty Homes being brought into practice. Brownfield is a real force."
Brownfield was one of 4 architects shortlisted for the prize. Below is the full list of shortlisted architects.
