L. Richard Lyon, III, AIA


To participate on teams of professionals who actually enjoy the practice of planning and documenting information, ideas and concepts that eventually become built environments, can be quite gratifying. Ours is a privileged profession that is both challenging and rewarding but few things exceed the satisfaction from experiencing others appreciating the spaces that we create.


Rick Lyon is a licensed architect with Neighboring Concepts. With nearly 40 years of experience, he brings knowledge and expertise in Commercial, K-12, Higher Education, Institutional, Military and Religious building types to the team.  Rick also has extensive experience with design, document production, project specification and construction contract administration.

Rick’s passion lies in participating in a collaborative design approach to resolve project issues, protecting the client’s primary goals while providing the highest level of professional service.

If I weren’t an architect I’d be…
An artist, with simplicity and repose being the qualities that measure the true value of my work.
