Richard’s architectural practice, Richard Mogas Architecture, AIA, was established 37 years ago and has worked extensively throughout the state of Texas and beyond.  His firm’s work has always embraced the philosophy of “valuing the reader over the author” and believes that each project they take on comes with its own unique sets of challenges and goals. “We understand that the smallest of details can only be logically accomplished if there is a complete understanding of the larger picture and concept.” 

Mr. Mogas has presented papers on architecture to various groups and has used his university teaching to inspire his students to think about architecture holistically.  His firm has been widely published in several books, magazines and newspapers including the New York Times.

In 2010, Richard’s office founded the Community Design Studio, which provides pro bono architectural services to non profits and those that the design team feels are in need of their expertise. Projects to date include remodeled offices for RAICES, the restoration work of Lerma’s, a project owned by the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center and design services for the Women’s and Children’s Shelter.

Continuously pursuing both architecture and art that motivates the observer, Richard has been making and exhibiting his art work throughout the State for the past 45 years, and is represented locally by the REM Gallery.
