Richard Munday



Richard Munday, Principal, has participated with the firm in the design of numerous significant campus planning and architectural projects, including at Princeton University, University of Connecticut, and Yale University, and led the design of most of the firm’s public school projects since 1998, and the design of public libraries in Connecticut and New York. With a focus on architecture for learning, Richard’s experience spans urban and campus master planning and architectural design for renovation and restoration, adaptive reuse, new buildings.

With longstanding interests in architecture for learning and research, the arts, and the public realm, Richard came to the United States from Australia, to study architectural theory and criticism at Yale University. After graduating with a Master of Environmental Design, he stayed in New Haven as an editor of the Yale architecture journal, Perspecta, joining Newman Architects at that time. He previously worked in private practice in Melbourne and, a published writer, was also a founding editor and publisher of the Australian architecture journal, Transition.

His early work with the firm included New Haven City Hall, the Downtown South Master Plan, Lynn University Library, master planning of the Parsons School of Design at the New School in New York, and the Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk, CT.

He has taught in architecture schools at the Rhode Island School of Design and RMIT University, Melbourne and was an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Architecture and Built Environment at the University of Adelaide in South Australia, his alma mater. In 2022, he began a five year term on the City of New Haven's Historic District Commission.
