Architect Jason Hite has been selected to participate in the AIA Triangle’s Emerging Professionals Leadership Forum. The program consists of a series panel discussions, workshops, and design firm visits designed to create an open dialogue between established leaders and participating professionals. Topics to be explored during the year range from leadership in design and architectural practice to firm dynamics and community-based design.
With eight years of experience, Jason is looking forward to the access the program provides to a variety of perspectives from architectural and business leaders across the Triangle and state.
“I am interested in the social and economic catalysts that drive each building’s design,” Jason states. “I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO with an architecture degree from Southern Illinois University. My move to North Carolina brought me another regional perspective. I want to contribute to the thoughtful and energetic built environment here.”
Jason joined Clark Nexsen in 2017, also the year of his licensure. Working out of the firm’s Raleigh office, he has been focused on commercial, higher education and cultural projects. He is currently on the design team for the $150 million Fitts-Woolard Hall Engineering Building at NC State as well as a new Visitor Center at Fort Fisher, North Carolina.
Jason is a Green Globes Professional and a member of the National Organization of Minority Architects. In addition to his Bachelor of Architectural Studies from SIU he holds a Master of Architecture from UNC Charlotte.
