Richard believes that the strength of the iterative design process in architecture can inspire responsible urbanisation in evolving global cities.

He has built a national and international career based upon a desire to advance the development of cities through urban intensification, masterplanning, sustainable design and the adaptive reuse of key buildings.

Richard leads teams responsible for design at multiple scales from ground-breaking tall buildings to innovative creative workplace projects such as the 2022 Governor General’s Medal in Architecture recipient, 80 Atlantic, a five-storey engineered wood building that reinvents the brick and beam typology.

Richard is actively engaged in the development and design industry in North America’s fourth largest and Canada’s most prosperous city, Toronto. He is currently the Chair of the Canadian chapter of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat and formerly as a member of the Advisory Board of the Urban Land Institute Toronto District Council. He is also an active and prior member of multiple influential Design Review Panels.

He has been selected by his peers to the College of Fellows of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and has previously held the role of Co-Chair of the Toronto Society of Architects.
