Jason Boutin, AIA, CPHD, LEED AP
Jason is the firm's managing partner, focusing on developing and enhancing the components of the firm's practice. Before joining the firm in 2000, he worked for New York's Butler Rogers and Baskett where he gained significant experience in commercial and institutional projects. Jason enjoys engaging with complex design challenges and the collaborative nature of an architectural project. He brings those interests to bear on many of the firm's projects as a facilitator, fascinated equally with the design process and the synergies that emerge in building a cohesive team.
Beyond the traditional practice of architecture, Jason is also keen on understanding and working with the relationship between community and the built environment. As a LEED Accredited Professional and a Certified Passive House Designer, he helped establish the firm's sustainability practices. And for the past 10 years, as a District Committee member, he worked with local council members to organize and implement Participatory Budgeting in New York City.
Jason currently resides in Park Slope with his wife and two boys, and is active in the running community, serving as the Board Chair for the Prospect Park Youth Running Club, a non-profit athletic club in Brooklyn. Jason was born in Burlington, Vermont and has called New York City home since graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1994, with Bachelor of Science in Building Design and a Bachelor of Architecture. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects and is currently the Secretary of the Brooklyn AIA. He holds a certificate from the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
