Architect as Developer

  • GSD Gund Hall 42 Quincy Street Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

In contemporary practice architects often find themselves relegated to the role of consultants, having to cede project leadership to developers who may or may not understand the importance of a well-designed product. A handful of architects, however, have decided to buck this trend and work as their own clients. By integrating the design and the development aspects of project delivery, the architect-as-developer business model allows the architect greater control in the project delivery process, resulting often in projects that are not only financially successful but beautifully designed as well. Join the Harvard RED Club on Wednesday, February 28th at 6:30pm in Piper as we welcome some of the industry's leading professionals in a panel discussion on the architect-as-developer practice model.
