Winner Dr Francis Duffy CBE

Renaissance man of modern space planning

Francis Duffy


The recipient of the 2004 BCO President's Award for a unique contribution to the art and science of office development is Frank Duffy.

Frank was one of the first to develop methodologies for analysing office space in a way that serves the interests of all players.

All his knowledge is shared - through writing; through teaching (as Visiting Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology); and through participation - Frank has served as president of the RIBA and is a trustee of the Architecture Foundation. This combination of practice, research and the sharing of knowledge is what the BCO is all about and makes Frank Duffy a worthy recipient of this award.
