Richard Filardo Ercan Architects Canberra



Canberra born to a diplomatic family, Richard grew up around the world and absorbed the great architecture of his host nations. Holding a Master in Architectural Design earned from RMIT University, Melbourne in 2017, he has returned to his hometown following a half decade in Nagoya, Japan.

Kind, cheerful and always ready to chat about his beloved NGA or botanic gardens, Richard loves to walk and cycle under the big skies, over the rolling mountains, and through the dappled sunlight of Canberra. He has plenty of ideas for harnessing local natural beauty with a technological, experiential and sculptural design toolset.

Richard is also an enthusiastic sketch artist; his dense sketches speak to his attention to detail and passion.
