Jason Roberts, AIA
Jason excels on a broad range of project types and scales from commercial and institutional to residential and ideas-based competitions. Since joining KSP in 2016, Jason has worked on several U.S. Embassy projects and, recently, on the re-envisioned amenity spaces at 125 High Street in Boston’s Financial District.
Jason graduated from the Yale School of Architecture with a Master of Architecture and received a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies from Judson University. Jason's studies allowed him to travel extensively to India, Iceland, Rome, and England. Through these experiences, he developed a wide view of landscape, urbanism, art, and architecture. Making and drawing are integral to his process, where a concept becomes artifact, and an idea becomes buildable. He draws from these resources to engage the specificity of a site and program to create innovative, layered, and imaginative spaces in collaboration with clients and project teams.
“Ambition drives the studio, while pragmatism grounds it. With this balanced focus, our team can help our clients realize innovative projects that inspire and make a lasting impact. I look forward to continuing the studio’s pursuit of forward-thinking solutions.”
