2014 Young Architects Award
Jason Dale Pierce, AIA | Notes of Interest
Jason is deeply committed to meeting the needs of emerging professionals, demonstrating how they, individually and collectively, can advance the profession. His ethic is an example of how strong organizational skills, tireless perseverance, and strategic thinking can make consequential differences in the lives of others.
Throughout his career, Jason has been active at the local, regional, and national levels of the AIA. After starting a YAF chapter at AIA St. Louis, he was asked to be the first emerging professional on the board of AIA Missouri. In an effort to continue to connect his region with the national conversation about emerging professionals, Jason became the YAF liaison for the Central States. This position provided the opportunity to deliver his message of bolstering mentorship and young leadership in the profession at the AIA Grassroots Leadership Conference, the AIA national convention, and AIA chapter events.
When he moved to California, he was active at the local chapter level, implementing numerous programs and activities to benefit emerging professionals. His contributions led to his election as vice president of the newly formed AIA California Council Academy for Emerging Professionals. He was also instrumental in building a mentorship program for AIA San Francisco, a unique, cross-generational model that brings together small groups of professionals at all stages of their careers.
Now back in St. Louis and working at HOK, Jason serves on the board of AIA St. Louis and is a member of the advisory group of the AIA National Practice Management Knowledge Community. His many honors and awards include the national Jason Pettigrew Memorial ARE Scholarship (2008) and the Young Architects/Associates Award from AIA San Francisco (2008).
