Jason came to architecture by way of classical archaeology, which he was studying at UC Berkeley when he happened upon a studio critique in Wurster Hall. His interest was ancient construction techniques, so he was blown away by the idea that people could build models and draw buildings for a class. Jason followed his undergraduate studies with a Master of Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he developed an interest in parametric design and learned to use CNC milling machines, 3-D printers and CATIA software. He used these digital tools to explore indeterminacy and polyvalence, and specifically to design forms that invite multiple interpretations about how they’re supposed to be used.
Jason has parlayed his scholarly work into a particular expertise in Building Information Modeling (BIM), and currently serves as WRNS Studio’s BIM leader. In addition to design work, he is responsible for ongoing staff training, project implementation, innovation and standardization, and critical discourse within the broader industry. Committed to advancing the practice of architecture, Jason enjoys sharing his knowledge with his peers, whether informally in the studio, via conferences, or in the classroom.
