Richard Chenoweth is a nationally recognized architect and artist who specializes in design strategy, architecture, historical resources and visualization.
In 2001, Richard and his partner won the Washington Metro Area Transit Authority's competition for a prototype system-wide canopy to cover the station entrances throughout the region. They eventually built twenty-nine of the canopies.
Besides his expertise as a transit architect, Richard excels in residential architecture, the adaptive use of historical forms and techniques, and the use of natural materials. He's worked on many projects that have won awards and have been featured in magazines like Architectural Digest. He consults on fine art, painting, sculpture, and furniture, as well.

In 2001, Richard won the Gabriel Prize for the study of French architecture. The Gabriel Prize, a national portfolio competition, funded a three month sabbatical to Paris, France, to study and draw 18th century buildings.
Please take a look at Richard's research into the Jefferson-era design and construction of the U.S. Capitol. This stage of the Capitol was destroyed in the War of 1812, and has only come to light via Richard's cinematic quality recreation.
Funded in part by two fellowships from the Curator of the Capitol and several years of production work, this investigation is now nearing completion. In his forensic analysis, based on drawings and letters, Richard has recreated the great neoclassical masterpiece: the Hall of Congress, it's two lighting schemes, one each by Latrobe and Jefferson, and even the first Statue of Liberty, designed by Latrobe and Franzoni. The colossal Sitting Liberty only existed from 1807-1814. The Most Beautiful Room in the World.
Richard's next goal is to tell this fabulous story of American art and architecture as a documentary movie. He's currently seeking co-producers and funding at this time. Please feel free to contact him.
