A fourth-generation architect, Jack Becker has a passion for connections: understanding how history can inform the future, how architecture can support sustainable land use, and how aesthetics can organize materials and technology. He works closely with clients to achieve their goals while balancing the stewardship of historic resources with the introduction of new spaces, materials, and details.
Jack’s portfolio includes buildings that must stand the test of time, accommodating heavy use by students or daily visitors. His designs reflect an appreciation for the conservation of natural resources, applying creative concepts using organic, renewable building materials.
“We must build empathy for the planet’s finite resources through the way we design, build, and conserve architecture.”
