Jonathan King, Partner at Bogdan Newman Caranci Architects, joins us to discuss architecture as a key part of the development process.
Jonathan sheds light on the entire process; how a contract is awarded, working with a client through multiple iterations, and finally selling a vision to the community and municipality.
