ASLA ELEVATES 23 MEMBERS TO THE COUNCIL OF FELLOWS

The American Society of Landscape Architects has elevated 23 members to the ASLA Council of Fellows for 2017. Fellowship is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and recognizes the contributions of these individuals to their profession and society at large based on their works, leadership and management, knowledge and service. 

Robert “Bob” Richardson, of RVi Planning and Landscape Architecture, of Austin, TX received his nomination, in Leadership/Management, from the Texas Chapter. Throughout his career, Richardson has advocated that the landscape architect is the prime planning and design consultant and the professional best suited to advance environmental values through community involvement. In 34 years he has grown his firm into five offices across three states. His leadership skills and business acumen are evident in his ability to match developers with investors, stay ahead of demographic and economic trends and manage multi-disciplinary teams. His commitment to environmental sensitivity and abundant open space has earned him many awards as well as high praise from the U.S. Secretary of the Interior. His impact on our communities and his profession stems from his passionate belief that the mission of landscape architecture is to protect the environment and enhance people’s lives.
