How many times have you spotted an empty site and dreamt about developing it? And how many times have you given up because of the difficulty of persuading the landowner to sell you the land?

Many architects have built their own house, but few have made the leap to become a fully-fledged architect developer. As trained problem solvers, architects are in a strong position to release value from sites and spot opportunities. They're able to work up creative solutions, which a non-architect developer might.

Featuring illustrated case studies and practical guidance, this is the first book aimed at the architect developer that covers every stage of the development process, from finding land through to raising capital, understanding risk and marketing and selling.

Featuring:



Projects by Breathe Architecture, Tamarkin Co., Liddicoat & Goldhill, Miklhail Riches, Sjoelander da Cruz and Turner Works.
Commercial, Co-housing, Cultural and Residential buildings.
New build and conversions.
