Harvey Rabinowitz, Professor
Harvey Rabinowitz’ primary work is on the relationship of real estate development and design in the built environment. The real estate industry produces much of the built environment we experience everyday - over 85% of all buildings by dollar volume are 'products' of the development industry. His work concentrates on bridging the chasm between architects and developers who speak different professional languages, employ disparate processes, and often harbor antithetical values. Integrating these two distinct mindsets through his teaching, research, practice and writing is a critical means towards improving the environment we live in.
