Hard to Find


Concerned with "development as art," Shouldn't we all be developers? is written by Roger Zogolovitch, founder of Solidspace. Zogolovitch studied at the Architectural Association in London between 1965 and 1971, and has seen the business of architecture since then from all sides: as architect, client and developer. He set up Solidspace as a vehicle to develop interstitial sites not otherwise recognised as suitable for inner city development. Shouldn't we all be developers? is written in the first person, as a manifesto for an approach to contemporary development and architecture. The Solidspace approach encourages collaboration with other architects-- partnerships include those with de Rijke Marsh Morgan Architects, Mole Architects and Stephen Taylor Architects. Their schemes are concerned with varied plans and sections, in order to open up small sites to larger footprints through interconnected spaces--borrowing, in part, from the history of Modern architecture, and ideas of the 'raumplan' and 'architectural promenade'. Projects include One Centaur Street in Lambeth, Essex Mews in Crystal Palace and the first Solidspace project, the Zog House in Queen's Park.
