Camden Whitehead



Camden’s practice as an architect is characterized by work that is sensitive to the site and demonstrates a thoughtful, responsible use of materials. Taking seriously his stewardship of the earth and its resources, he mediates design solutions on a range of scales, from neighborhood planning to furniture design, from houses and additions to watercolors.

Camden received his bachelor’s degree from Averett College in 1976 with a major in studio art. While there, he was honored with the C L Davenport Award for Excellence. He received his master’s of architecture from Virginia Tech in 1980. After practicing architecture with several Richmond firms, he joined the faculty of the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University where he has served for more than 20 years.

Camden is active in public service, serving on the City of Richmond’s Urban Design Committee and Public Arts Commission. He has provided pro bono work to Saint Gertrude School, The Maggie L Walker Governor’s School, the Virginia Society AIA, the James River Park, and the Midtown Planning Committee.
