2018 AIACOC President
Jason Hukill, AIA of LWPB Architecture
Provide a Short Bio:
I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Architecture and a registered architect in the State of Oklahoma and a LEED Accredited Professional and I work for LWPB Architecture as a Project Manager and Architect. I currently live in Edmond Oklahoma with my wife Jessica, 14 year old son Zavian, and dog Luna (our furbaby). Lately our lives seem to revolve around fitting DIY projects in between sports watching seasons, my son's Boy Scout activities, and camping in our travel trailer all over the region (especially Colorado).
How long have you been a member of AIA? Since 1998
What's your favorite AIA Central Oklahoma event? Sporting Clays Tournament (shooting guns relaxes me)
Why did you choose to get involved in the AIACOC Board? Other than to serve the design community I love, I wanted to connect with other like-minded professionals and to really dig in to get to know our local architectural community and its culture.
What's your favorite thing about AIA? Fellowship. Even though we are technically an institute that promotes architects, I like the fellowship the AIA brings through our various activities and the opportunity to get to know and network with my professional peers and business associates. Great stories, great memories, great company...and all in a creative environment.
What attracted you to the architectural profession? I was always drawing as a child, and then one day I drew a floor plan of our house and was hooked from then on. My first drafting class was in 7
th grade and made the obsession real after winning first place in a drafting contest in middle school. I never knew I could draw a nut and bolt isometric so well....LOL.
Do you do any volunteer work? My wife and I would be considered "transient" volunteers as we spread our time over a lot of different causes and groups. Lately our focus has been on organizations dedicated to fighting cancer.
What's your favorite piece/place of design in Oklahoma? Although a World's Fair was never held here in OKC, I remember as a kid riding the monorail, ascending the space needle tower, and seeing all the modern buildings (at the time) at our State Fairgrounds and I also have fond memories of when all this was still functional. It's was sort of like Jetsons meet the prairie!
If you were a super hero, who would you be? The Flash, as I would be able to speed everywhere and cover more ground.
Window or aisle? Aisle......I know. I know, it's not the fun answer, but ever since I went skydiving in college, heights and views from 30,000ft now bother me. Go figure!
On a Saturday morning, where could we typically find you? It's a toss-up between coffee on the patio or a walking/running trail around town.
