Richard has built an international career promoting the development of cities through urban intensification, master planning, sustainable design and adaptive reuse. Bringing his wide-ranging experience to Quadrangle, he leads mid-rise urban infill projects such as Abacus Lofts, a dynamic Toronto residential building, and the mixed-use St. Helens Avenue project. His other major projects include the Shunde mixed-use facility in Guangdong and commercial projects in Delhi and Mumbai. Richard was one of three architects invited to represent Ontario’s green building sector in the Premier’s 2009 CleanTech trade mission to India, which led to further projects abroad. After earning a Bachelor of Architecture degree at the University of Waterloo, he worked for Aukett Ltd. in Prague, Geneva and London, and for Foster + Partners in London. He joined Quadrangle in 2003, left in 2007 to co-found RAW Design (winner of an OAA Best Emerging Practice Award) and in 2012 returned as a principal. He is active in the architectural community, serving as co-chair of the Toronto Society of Architects, on the Urban Land Institute Outreach Committee, and on many juries, exhibitions, charrettes and faculty councils.
