Jackie SageJun 6, 2023

If you've run an architectural practice for any amount of time, you've probably had clients who tried to avoid paying an invoice.

Architect Marina Rubina is an alumnus of the Business of Architecture SMART Practice™ program.

She is a Registered Architect in the states of New Jersey and California and is a LEED Accredited Professional. She holds Master’s degrees in both Architecture and Structural Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Marina is involved in the life of her community as a member of Princeton’s municipal Site Plan Review Advisory Board, a board member of Princeton Future, and a founding member of Princeton Progressive Action Group.

In this episode of the Business of Architecture podcast, you'll hear how Rubina pivoted from a residentially focused practice to a practice focused on “livable lovable density.” You'll also hear stories of how Rubina collected from two clients who didn't want to pay while respecting her boundaries in a professional manner.
