Remo Riva together with Nick Burns took over the helm of P&T as the fifth leadership team in the firm’s history.  Mr. Riva brought with him a disciplined yet playful design approach, with the use of geometry coupled with a dynamic yet human sense of space, structural clarity and the precise choice and use of materials in skyscrapers, mixed-use developments, hotel, cultural and commercial buildings. Mr. Riva is a master at designing buildings with clarity, order, purity, functionality and beauty, always with a subtle playfulness applied with intelligence. His buildings are innovative, modern yet timeless and of the highest quality and technical standard of excellence. His design excellence is highly respected and comes across in his master planning, super high rise towers creating urban skylines, intimate urban communities and large scale mixed-use projects.

Mr. Riva designed numerous visionary buildings that have become landmarks in various Asian cities, defining their skyline none more so than in Hong Kong, and he continues to put his signature on urban communities in particular in China.

Mr. Riva placed P&T on the map as an international design firm with his design of Exchange Square in Central, Hong Kong which is recognized as a leading example of sustainable urban development and he has since contributed significantly to P&T’s reputation as a global leader. In a year we will see the 8th tallest building in the world, designed by Mr. Riva as part of an impressive master plan in Tianjin, China.
