William B. Richardson, AIA
Education: Masters of Architecture, Yale University

Position: Principal Architect and Planner
William B. Richardson, AIA came to Eastern Kentucky in 1966 as a graduate student to work on low-cost housing opportunities.  He led a group of students and professionals in the establishment of a Community Design Center in Redfox, Kentucky.  The CDC designed several low-cost housing units and community centers.  Their most significant contribution was helping to start the Eastern Kentucky Housing Development Corporation (EKHDC), one of the nation’s first O.E.O. rural housing corporations.  EKHDC subsequently repaired over 4,000 rural homes and built 200 new ones and is still continuing in the new form of HOMES, Inc.
Upon graduation from the Yale Master of Architecture program in 1969, Richardson was awarded a grant to set up an Appalachian media arts center in Whitesburg, Kentucky.  The Appalshop has since evolved into a national model for rural arts and education center – working in media education graphics, film, video, publishing, photography, theater, recordings, television, and radio production.  This group now has grown to 40 workers, operating a $2,000,000 annual program.  The theater, gallery, and public facilities, designed by Richardson, receives over 26,000 visitors yearly.
