About me.

Richard-Allen Foster

I thrive in the intersecting space between technology and design and love to connect often unseen dots. I am always thinking about how future technologies and evolving philosophies are reshaping architecture and placemaking and how emerging technologies can advance the design processes and enhance our storytelling abilities.


I excel in fostering collaborative studio environments and public engagement processes.

I am an architect with over 20 years of design experience, a decade of which in Design Director roles. I have taught both studio design and computer technology in design courses at the university level and I have worked in firms of various sizes, from the largest down to 3-10 people teams.
