Patricia Brown is an urban strategist, advising civic and business leaders on urban change and building public private partnerships, through both her consultancy and non-exec positions. She has led some of London’s most significant urban changes, including establishing Business Improvement Districts in the UK and measures to transform our built environment – and policy – with people at the heart.
She is Vice-Chair of the British Property Federation’s Development Committee, chairing its Great Places Campaign. She chaired London Festival of Architecture from 2013-16 and was Vice-Chair of the Mayor’s Design Advisory Group, where she was behind the Good Growth agenda, now at the core to the London Plan. She is currently developing a new initiative called London 3.0; a focus on London’s evolution over the last twenty years and its current multi-dimensional challenges and solutions to address them.
Patricia works across the UK and in New York, where she has advised the Times Square Alliance since 2006, and stints teaching at NYC Schack institute of Real Estate, as well as collaborating with and advising the City of New York and other institutions.
She was awarded an honorary RIBA Fellowship in 2017 for services to architecture and the built environment.
