Megan Brown


FA Energy Team Manager

Megan brings a diverse range of project experiences in various typologies, including laboratories, higher education, civic and cultural projects. Many of these undertakings have been unique and highly technical, such as research greenhouses, cleanrooms, and aerospace engineering labs.

Megan's true passion lies in high-performance buildings, building science, healthy materials, and embodied carbon studies. As a Certified Passive House Designer, she is eager to apply this knowledge to all future projects. She is constantly mindful of the pressing need to reduce carbon emissions in the built environment. Megan thrives on delving into research and technical details to discover more sustainable construction methods.

Megan's initial fascination with architecture stemmed from her love of physics, dating back to her high school days of building egg drop models and toothpick bridges. Her very first architectural drawing, crafted around the age of 10, featured a three-level circular house, complete with spiral staircases. It may have had a few inefficiencies!

Outside of the office, you'll often find Megan in the great outdoors, enjoying quality time with her family and fluffy dog amidst the lush forest behind their home.

Need to Know

What did you want to be when you were small? A Marine Biologist! I think this dream was largely driven by a desire to live near a tropical beach. Sadly, it did not come to fruition.

Favorite Podcast? I love podcasts so it’s hard to pick just one. My current top 3: Hidden Brain by NPR, Breaking Down Patriarchy, and SWA’s Buildings and Beyond.

If you were a super-hero, what powers would you have? I would want Elastigirl's power from the Incredibles. To stretch and reach anything would be a game changer!

Favorite app? Snapseed. It’s awesome for editing photos, and it’s free!
