ricardo dumont

Ricardo trained as a landscape architect and architect and is co-founder with Gregory Janks of DumontJanks in Boston. Ricardo’s extensive institutional planning and design experience includes award-winning frameworks, master plans, urban design projects, and built work for over 75 institutions including Auburn University, Bates College, Brown University, Fordham University, Georgetown University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, the Mayo Clinic, Northwestern University, The Ohio State University, Purdue University, the University of Florida, and the University of Virginia.

His public and private urban development work includes planning, urban design, and built work for mixed-use and residential projects such as the East Baltimore District Plan with Forest City/Johns Hopkins, Technology Square @ MIT, and the waterfronts of Nantucket and Newburyport. These private development projects have ranged in scale from dense urban sites to thousands of acres. His rural agricultural background has led to a strong understanding, beliefs, and work portfolio in large land preserves. He has served such diverse clients as the Rockefeller family, the Aga Khan Foundation in Central Asia, a family and government eco-tourism consortium for a national park in Cozumel, Mexico, and the City and Mayor of Santiago, Chile for Parque O’Higgins. He has also worked extensively with the large land resources of American colleges, universities, and land grant agricultural schools.

The design teams led by Ricardo have been recognized with planning and design awards from the American Institute of Architects, the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Society for College and University Planning. He is a graduate of the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Syracuse University; and is the co-author of Mission and Place: Strengthening Learning and Community through Campus Design, published by Praeger Press.
