“Dick Clark + Associates has shaped the Austin community for nearly 40 years. Founded by the late Dick Clark, FAIA, DC+A started out in residential design, branching into commercial projects in the 1990s. The firm’s fingerprint is seen throughout Austin, especially downtown, where they have completed more than 70 projects and pioneered the way in making the core of the city a vibrant place to explore, relax, and live. DC+A’s award-winning restaurant designs have defined the comfortable ambiance for which Austin is known, and their modern residences seamlessly blend elegant design with the Hill Country landscape and spirit.” -Texas Society of Architects

Today marks one year since we lost our dear friend, collaborator and mentor. In celebration of his life, we have teamed up with our long time friends at the Nobelity Project to build a new tribute that encompasses Dick’s passion for design, education, people and travel.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the Dick Clark III Legacy Library, located at Mahiga Hope High School in Kenya. The new library will add another beautiful building to the Mahiga Hope Campus, which is the same place that we designed and built the award-winning Rainwater Court.
If you are interested in seeing a preview of the project or donating money to help fund this project, you can do so by clicking here.
