Learn more about Duncan’s work

Duncan co-founded BBM in 1993. Since then Duncan has played a pivotal role in defining the creative direction of the practice while maintaining teaching links with the University of Brighton’s School of Architecture.

One of the more innovative and interesting projects BBM have been involved with in recent years is the Waste House.

The Waste House

Commissioned by the University of Brighton and Hove City council, the brief was create a permanent academic building that can also be used as an open studio by local community groups, businesses, schools & colleges.

The ambition was to construct the building using material discarded by others and crucially to include students and other young people in the design and build process; using it as a ‘live’ pedagogic tool. And the results were truly stunning.
