Jennifer Buck, AIA, LEED AP BD+C
RSP Architects | Senior Associate | Project Manager
Jennifer’s belief is that architecture goes above and beyond the physical aspect of a building — it has the power to connect people and communicate a client’s priorities and persona. She leads by listening and her ability to communicate effectively, efficiently and with ease is what clients appreciate most about her approach. She’s persistent in determining the right mix of business values, budgets and timelines.
From corporate offices and service centers to higher education, military and retail work, Jennifer’s experience covers a variety of project types. Her favorite part is taking the time to understand the people and community she designs for while tying together the needs of the built environment.
Jennifer holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of Minnesota, and a Master of Architecture from Iowa State University. She thrives off learning more on every project she is on.
Most recently Jennifer has proudly finished the Junior Achievement project in St Paul MN, and is program manager for a newly refreshed retail program and prototype for Fleet Farm. Each project offers new ways to look at design, and opportunity for contributing positively to the environment and community.
