Founder and Director of the British consultancy firm Colander, Caroline Cole has inspired many of the UK’s most successful architectural practices to develop their businesses.

Session Four: Successful Small Practice

by Kevin Mark Low – Small Projects (MYS)

Raised in Southeast Asia, Kevin spent nine years in the United States before returning to Malaysia to reclaim old dreams of a sole practice in 2002.
