MARK RIOS, FAIA, FASLA, is the Founding Principal of Los Angeles-based RIOS CLEMENTI HALE STUDIOS (RCHS).
As Founding Principal, Mark Rios has led both the design and business direction of Rios Clementi Hale Studios since first establishing the firm as Rios Associates in 1985. Under his design leadership, the firm has developed an international reputation for its collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach, establishing an award-winning tradition across an unprecedented range of design disciplines. His vision has always been to create complete environments – outside and inside – and to design all the elements that give each place its character.
Formally trained in both architecture and landscape architecture (MArch and MLA, Harvard GSD), Mark’s eclectic interests and innate curiosity have propelled his creative explorations beyond traditional professional borders. Mark has been honored with over 50 professional design awards during his career and his projects have been widely published in over 100 national and international books and periodicals. Landscape commissions have ranged from the design of public parks, plazas, and streets, to private gardens, furniture, and products inspired by Mark’s desire for everyone to take note of and appreciate their surrounding ecological and cultural environments.
