Dominic Richards was raised in Australia and England, graduating from King’s College, Cambridge and the Prince of Wales’ Institute of Architecture.
He has enjoyed rescuing and finding new uses for wonderful historic buildings in the UK and is former Vice Chairman and Director of The Prince’s Foundation for Building Community.
Dominic’s enterprises now comprise Our Place, a sustainable development company, Retreat East, an eco-farm development and Prosper Education, a digital education in China. Dominic is passionate about the way in which our built environment can be fostered to create harmony and to support community building. He believes much modern development has done precisely the opposite: it isolates and creates discord by not celebrating the scale of the human or respecting the planet.
