Davis Richardson is an M.Arch I candidate at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture, pursuing a career as an architect. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from Harding University which taught him about the power of empathetic design and design thinking. At Harding, Richardson also excelled as an athlete, playing baseball for the Bisons. He was named a 1st-Team Capital One Academic All-American in 2015, the first baseball player to achieve that honor in 60+ years of Harding baseball history. He was also named the Great American Conference Male Scholar Athlete of the Year in 2015, an honor given to one athlete from all sports in the conference.
Richardson is most notable in the design community for building his innovative Tiny House on Wheels, known as "Kinetohaus," right out of college before moving to Austin for graduate studies. A hands-on design-build experiment with affordable, alternative housing, the tiny house would be featured on HGTV's show, "Tiny House, Big Living," and as part of UT Live at SXSW Interactive 2017. Moving forward, he intends to explore the overlap of innovative design, advanced digital design theory and technology, and affordable housing by offering alternatives to the status quo. He is always interested in collaborating on exciting projects.
