Jake Dunn, Associate AIA, LEED AP BD+C came to New Orleans after living and working in Boise, ID as a an Architectural Simulation Specialist at the University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab where he worked on energy efficiency research, sustainability consulting through building simulation, and professional/student outreach.
Architecture was a randomly selected major that has turned into a life-long passion to explore the intersection between aesthetics and performance through a scientific approach to sustainability. Resolved that high performance and high design are not mutually exclusive terms, he employs building simulation and evidence-based design to achieve a more sustainable built environment.
Jake leads the chapter's Benchmarking Initiative, conducting benchmarking training, supervising interns, and building the chapter's new K-12 School benchmarking database.
A resident of the Lower Garden District, Jake spends his free time backpacking, traveling, fishing, cooking, and playing the guitar. He and his wife have a two month old son.
