Rick Joy is the founder of Rick Joy Architects, aka Studio Rick Joy, an award-winning architecture, interiors, and planning firm based in Tucson, Arizona.

Studio Rick Joy has been recognized for an exquisitely sensitive and thoughtful approach to site, observation, process, landscape, and building. The studio's work has encompassed intimate single-family homes and large-scale master plans, and has included residential commissions in Miami, New York City, San Francisco, Tucson, Costa Rica, and Turks and Caicos, as well as lifestyle-based projects in Nayarit, Mexico City, and Austin. Recently, the studio brought new life to Princeton University with the recently completed Transit Hall and Market.

The studio's work has been widely published, appearing in Cereal, Architectural Record, A+U, GA Houses, Architectural Digest, Travel + Leisure, The New York Times, and Vogue. Joy has been a visiting professor at Harvard, Rice, M.I.T., and the University of Arizona. He is founder of the Immersion Vermont Master Class, a weeklong immersive program for mid-career architects, and the co-founder, with Claudia Kappl, of CLL Concept Lighting Lab, which provides lighting for all Studio Rick Joy projects as well as for independent commissions.
