is a silly acronym for Davis Richardson Office of Objects, Projects, and Images, which is a silly way of saying we design and make drawings of things and spaces.
Our interests lie in using geometry, form, color, texture, and material to create fun, playful, and/or unexpected things with a rigorous conceptual foundation. 

Drooopi was founded by Davis Richardson. He is a licensed architect in the state of Texas and holds a Masters of Architecture from the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. He has served as faculty at the Hillier College of Architecture and Design at the New Jersey Institute of Technology and at the Architectural Association Visiting School in London. His work and writing have been featured in the Architect’s Newspaper (where he is a regular contributor and critic, writing on technology in architecture), the A+D Museum in Los Angeles, Texas Architect magazine, Paprika! by the Yale School of Architecture, PLAT by the Rice School of Architecture,  ISSUE by UTSOA, and SXSW, among many others. He gave a TED talk on aesthetic philosophy and ecological thinking in architecture (but he doesn’t recommend watching it). He has also been a visiting juror at the Spitzer School of Architecture at CCNY, the University of Southern California, UTSOA, the University of Houston, NJIT, and the AA Visiting School. He is currently an architect at REX in New York City, and has worked previously at Overlay Office in Brooklyn, Perkins&Will and THOUGHTBARN in Austin, and Bohlin Cywinski Jackson in Seattle, among others.
