After earning his Architect (1965) and Master of Urban Planning (1968) degrees, both with "maximum distinction," from the Universidad Católica de Chile, Enrique Browne entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Special Graduate Student in 1969.  Supported by fellowships from the Ford Foundation (1969-71), the Social Science Research Council (1975), and the Guggenheim Foundation, Mr. Browne then undertook advanced studies in the United States, England, and Japan.

In the ensuing years, Mr. Browne established himself as one of the foremost architects in the world, celebrated for an aesthetic that weds architectural tradition with designs that are ecologically minded and energy conserving.  The offices of the insurance company Consorcio-Vida in Santiago, Chile, is one of his best-known projects. 

Enrique Browne is among the elite architects showcased in the Ten Houses series (Rockport Publications, 1977), edited by Oscar Riera Ojeda. Architectural Review, Architectural Design (UK), Arquitectura Viva (Spain), Projeto (Brazil), and C.A. (Chile) are just a few of the premier architectural journals in which Mr. Browne’s over 240 articles or projects have been featured.  In addition, he has written three monographs, and his work has been the subject of thirty-two exhibitions.

In 2008, Enrique Browne was a juror for the biennial International VELUX Award for Students of Architecture.
