We would like to take a moment to welcome Edward Emile Richardson as he joins Clark | Richardson Architects full time. Ed Richardson is originally from New Orleans and has practiced architecture in Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Mexico and Texas. Previously an Associate with Miro Rivera Architects, Ed has vast experience in custom residential, commercial architecture as well as small medical and professional buildings. His former clients range from residential clients to large commercial clients including the University of Texas- ‘Texas Exes’ and Formula One.
Ed studied architecture at both Yale University, where he was awarded both the Blanning Prize and the Parsons Memorial Medal, and the University of Virginia. Enjoying being involved in the community, Ed has instructed both undergraduate and advanced studio courses at the University of Texas and University of New Mexico.
Ed was the editor of the 39th edition of Perspecta, the Yale Architecture Journal, titled Re_Urbanism (MIT, 2007) which investigates the transformation of capital cities in the era of globalization. He has also contributed articles to MONU, Texas Architect and MasContext. Ed has been invited to serve as a panelist this fall in SXSW Eco, a new SXSW event focused on sustainability.
Creatively collaborating since 2001, April Clark and Ed Richardson formed the architecture firm Clark | Richardson Architects in 2009 with the goal of creating elegant experiences through form, sustainability and attention to detail. April and Ed began exploring the possibilities of design together in graduate school at Yale University and continued this exploration during their time practicing in Santa Fe. Both Ed and April are from unique and emblematic cities, Ed being from New Orleans and April is a native of Santa Fe. This background has given both partners a strong sense of place and respect for the built and natural environments that is reflected in the way they approach design.
