Richard, the principal architect at the CSC Design Studio, is an environmental architect, solar energy and sustainability pioneer, and professor emeritus at the University of Kentucky. He was an early solar architecture innovator in the U.S. and his sustainable city research has been the foundation of urban development projects in China, the Middle East, Austria, Italy, and the United States.  In 2010 Levine was named “Passive Solar Pioneer” by the American Solar Energy Society to honor his lifetime achievements in solar design.

Levine, along with his colleague Ernest J. Yanarella, founded the Center for Sustainable Cities (CSC) at the University of Kentucky, to study and advance the theory of sustainability. Partnering with Dr. Heidi Dumreicher, director of Oikodrom: the Vienna Institute for Urban Sustainability, the CSC identified the scale of the city-region as the scale at which homeostatic balance could be achieved among social, environmental, economic and urban issues.
