Jared Wright, AIA, LEED AP

Born and raised in a small Texas town, all it took was a trip to New York City in High School for Jared to realize he wanted to be an architect. That vibrant urban environment spurred a fascination with design and architecture that eventually took him to Texas Tech University where he graduated with a Master of Architecture degree. While at Texas Tech, Jared also worked for the school’s Research & Design Center which took him back to NYC to work on the historic documentation of the Statue of Liberty for the Library of Congress using new 3D laser scanning technology.

Before moving to Utah in 2013, Jared spent nearly a decade in Los Angeles working as a licensed architect and LEED accredited professional for an award winning design firm in Venice Beach. During that time, he designed a wide range of building types from single family homes to master-planning site developments; hotel design to museum and cultural centers. Regardless of a project’s size or type, Jared remains acutely focused on creating meaningful, thoughtful and functional space while incorporating environmentally responsible design solutions.

Jared now lives in the Avenues neighborhood of Salt Lake with his wife and two kids, where as an avid runner he tries to find time to get out on the mountain trails as much as possible. He can be found sitting as well, reading anything and everything on the history and architecture of Paris and France – likely with a cup of La Barba Coffee in hand, a local company where he is part owner. Jared also serves on the Board of Directors for the Utah Center for Architecture, an organization which educates the public about the power of the built environment to shape our lives, communities and culture.
