British Architect Richard Feilden Dies in Sudden Accident

Tributes have been pouring in for one of British architecture’s most successful and respected figures, Richard Feilden, 54, founding partner of UK firm Feilden Clegg Bradley. Feilden died on Jan 3 in a tragic accident near his home. He was crushed by a tree he was felling at his home in the village of Warleigh, outside Bath, England.
He leaves a widow and three children.

Feilden was clearing a glade in the forest in memory of his father who had himself died three months ago, and towards the end of the job a tree broke unexpectedly and struck him mortally on the chest.

Colleagues at the practice of 110 have been "absolutely devastated" by the news, and partner Peter Clegg said the loss was professionally and personally "incalculable." RIBA President George Ferguson describes his death as a tragic loss of "a great force for good in British architecture."

After studying at Cambridge University and the AA, Feilden formed his partnership with Clegg in 1978. The practice is admired for its commitment to environmental design and sustainability.
