He writes and speaks regularly on sustainable design, resilience, and the value of small scale, incremental development. His forthcoming book – Building Small: A Handbook for Real Estate Entrepreneurs, Civic Leaders and Great Communities – will provide a detailed look at the why and how of fine grained development based on national research and Forums over 14 cities. The book will articulate why small scale development provides a more economically resilient and socially impactful approach to building and regenerating communities, than more common institutional methods.
