Remembered best for his Duke of Edinburgh Prize-winning design of an ATM machine for the Chubb Locks company, Howe is also notable for his work on a Cambridgeshire school known as Impington Village College.
He received his architectural training at London's University of Westminster (which was then known as Regent Street Polytechnic).
In the years following World War II, he established his own architectural practice and contributed to the design of the 1958 Brussels World Fair.
The son of a butcher, Howe grew up in Enfield, Middlesex, England.
In 1937, he succeeded Walter Gropius as the key architect of England's Impington Village College.
