Jason J. Jewhurst AIA
Jason’s passion for reconnecting with the natural environment informs all of his work as a specialist in sustainable and high-performance building design. An avid outdoorsman born and raised in the lakes region of New Hampshire, Jason welcomes sustainable design challenges that demand innovative solutions that can adapt to our evolving built environment. As a principal at Bruner/Cott, Jason leads design teams to explore possibilities inspired by a shared set of values and goals to create high-performance, contemporary architecture that is beautiful and inspiring.
Jason’s work with Bruner/Cott includes projects that transform academic campuses with net positive design. Both the Regenerative Village at Yale Divinity School Master Plan and the R. W. Kern Center at Hampshire College are designed to meet the high standards of the Living Building Challenge, and his designs for the Boston University School of Law expansion and Yawkey Center for Student Services are LEED Gold certified while the Institute for Global Citizenship at Minnesota’s Macalester College earned Platinum certification. Recently, Jason became a founding member of the International Living Future Institute’s East Coast Congress, a think tank for sustainable policy and advocacy.
Jason speaks frequently at regional and national conferences on high-performance design, sustainable materials, net positive design, and campus transformation, and has lectured at area colleges, including his alma mater, the Wentworth Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Bruner/Cott, Jason worked for Leers Weinzapfel Architects, winner of the 2007 AIA Firm Award.
