BD columnist and London Festival of Architecture deputy chair joins Croydon’s Brick by Brick development company

South London housing developer Brick by Brick has appointed former U+I director Martyn Evans as its non-executive chair.

The firm was set up by Croydon council three years ago to increase the flow of affordable housing in the borough and build more than 1,000 homes by 2019.

Evans, who writes a regular column for BD and is also deputy chair of the London Festival of Architecture, worked for Cathedral as creative director at the time it merged with Development Securities to form U+I in 2016.
