Studied Landscape Architecture and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University, 2010-2015
Richard joined Grant Associates in 2015 after previously working for Smeeden Foreman and Gillespies. His previous project experience ranges from strategic projects like the Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme, to temporary works such as Media City UK. He is currently working on the detail delivery and implementation of several projects in the office.
His design principles are based upon creating highly productive landscapes that respond to contemporary social and environmental concerns. These principles are underpinned by his strong passion to explore the relationships and boundaries between landscape architecture, art, psychology, history and science.
Richard has strong practical experience, and takes a keen interest in the refinement of detailing and the construction process.
