Richard Llewellyn-Davies, Baron Llewelyn-Davies (24 December 1912 – 27 October 1981) was a British architect.
Llewelyn-Davies was Professor of Architecture at The Bartlett, University College London from 1960 to 1969, and Professor of Urban Planning and Head of the School of Environmental Studies from 1970 to 1975. He was the designer of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.
In 1960, Richard Llewelyn-Davies and John Weeks formed the architectural and planning practice Llewelyn-Davies Weeks, which became one of the most influential hospital design and master planning companies in the UK. Major early commissions included the design of Northwick Park Hospital and offices for The Times newspaper.
The company grew with the addition of Walter Bor in 1964 and become Llewelyn-Davies, Weeks, Forestier-Walker, and Bor, and was known for the master planning of Milton Keynes. The company now trades as 'Llewelyn Davies' and retains the name 'Llewelyn Davies Weeks Ltd' in memory of the founding partners.
