Richard Horden (born 1944), is a British architect based in London. Following an early career with Norman Foster, where he worked for ten years, he established his own practice Richard Horden Associates in 1985,[1] which became Horden Cherry Lee Architects in 1999.


Horden was educated at Bryanston School in Dorset and trained at The Architectural Association in London. He received a scholarship for a tour of America in 1968, where he saw the influential 1950 Rockefeller guest house in New York by Philip Johnson, the California houses by Craig Ellwood, and the sculptures of Kenneth Snelson.[1]

Horden worked at Foster and Partners from 1975 with the architect Sir Norman Foster for 10 years, where he worked on the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and Stansted Airport projects.

He started his own firm Richard Horden Associates in 1985.

Horden is Professor in Architecture and Product Design at Technische Universität München.
