Experts from the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank offer tips for architects and others taking their first plunge into international markets. The hottest market, they suggest, may be developing-country cities, the source of more than half these nations' gross domestic products and some 80 percent of their future growth. Advice includes teaming up with local firms and keeping an open mind about what sorts of work to take on. The various stages of project preparation are explained, the outlook for multilateral development-bank funding is assessed, and the strengths of Japanese, U.S. and European firms are compared.
