    I’m very much interested in this business model, however, I wonder how much of this is relevant in the Chicago market.

    Great stuff! Thanks Enoch and Jonathan for the interview, really interesting. I got here by Googling something like “architect going into development”. It has been in my mind for some time… And you show is full of interesting resources about this!

    Thanks for sharing all the information from Jonothan Segal. Certainly an inspiring interview with a multi-dimentional architect that has connected with all the important aspects of architecture. All that stuff that they don’t teach you in school or even after you get out.

    This is a great interview, I hope you can keep them coming. The topic of the architect as developer has been something that I have started exploring as of late. In the interview, Jonothan mentions that you can leverage you drawings as part of the down payment when dealing with lenders. Architectural services are something that you, as the architect, can provide, however how is that possible when MEP and Structural consultants are involved?
