Richard Fisher Associates has a highly specialized expertise in the design of parks and public spaces, and has coined the term “Parkitecture” to describe the special values and challenges inherent in this complex, yet exciting, process.  We recognize that our public agency clients not only answer to Council/Board members, but to its citizens as well; that is why we believe in taking an active role in the Public Participation process.  Richard Fisher Associates takes great pride in helping public agencies to make their citizens’ dreams a reality...
