Jane studied at the Bartlett (UCL) and now runs Jane Duncan Architects, a practice of 20 staff based in Amersham, Buckinghamshire. The practice has an established local clientele and is involved in many community activities. The workload varies from contemporary sustainable housing to leisure and sports facilities, and includes commercial, health and community buildings principally throughout the South of England.
Jane has been involved in championing small practice issues at the RIBA for nine years, and established the annual Guerrilla Tactics conferences, dealing with topical issues relating to the smaller practice. She is currently the RIBA Vice President, Practice and Profession, and a trustee of the RIBA Board.
