In the first of a series of talks by architect developers, Mark Shaw will discuss the two houses that he and two architect friends built in Walthamstow, east London.

The series is aimed at architects who would like to know more about the opportunities and challenges around being an independent developer, including spotting creative solutions that a non-architect developer will often miss. Future speakers include Donald Matheson, Sophie Goldhill and Alex Wright.

Mark Shaw founded London-based Studioshaw in 2016 focused on low energy, sustainable development. The practice is currently working on an apartment building in Hackney Wick, a new theatre and restaurant in Bethnal Green and a community housing scheme in Somerset.

The event will be followed by networking drinks and nibbles.

This event is supported by BuildStore and The Building Society.
