Jack Chin began his career in architecture upon completing his graduate-level education in architecture and urban design, but soon made a life-changing decision. After witnessing the devastation of September 11, 2001, at Ground Zero in New York, he volunteered for nearly two years to help the families of the victims. Once Jack returned to architecture in 2003, he brought with him the unique values and skills he had learned through that experience: compassion, careful communications and follow-through, and a lifelong appreciation for culture and community.
Jack’s career has involved master planning and design projects in locations around the world, from Puerto Rico to Vietnam, and from Washington, DC, to Shanghai, China. His expertise includes the design of public and private educational facilities, mixed-use centers, government buildings, and multifamily residential communities.
“I enjoy addressing complex issues in design—involving relationships, interesting dynamics and nuances, politics, and diverse objectives—and helping to discern and resolve challenges.”
