Jason Boyer’s work redefines what’s possible through the eyes of the client - rethinking the norms of architectural practice to drive performance-based design solutions that result in elegant, simple, and compelling project outcomes. A graduate from the University of Illinois and Arizona State University, Boyer was recognized among the top three graduates in his Master of Architecture class and has since served in an Adjunct Faculty position with the ASU School of Architecture. 

At age 35 Boyer was named Design Principal and Director of Architecture for the Phoenix office of OWP/P, a notable accomplishment in a profession where the average principal age is 52. In 2009 OWP/P merged with Cannon Design where he served as Design Principal for Cannon Design’s Phoenix based Western Mountain Region office. A firm-wide design leader, he collaborated across offices with projects in Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix, and San Francisco. His design leadership was recognized by the General Services Administration in 2009 with the selection of his portfolio for the Region 9 Land Port of Entry Design Excellence IDIQ program.

In 2012 Boyer founded Jason Boyer Architects, adding real estate development to his skillset with the completion of artHAUS, a nationally recognized residential infill project. He has since transformed his practice to include design-led real estate development, re-establishing it as Boyer Vertical in 2020. Boyer Vertical integrates architecture, development, and design|build construction under a single real estate platform focused on creating sustainable architecturally significant projects. artHAUS, the first project completed under the Boyer Vertical umbrella, is a 25-unit smart, modern transit-oriented development that serves as a model for missing-middle infill housing and has been featured in the Urban Land Institute case study library. 

In February 2022, Jason Boyer joined the three percent of AIA members who have been honored for making significant contributions to the profession by being elevated to the AIA College of Fellows.

Boyer’s strength is balance – possessing an entrepreneurial skillset that is both design and business savvy. He is a mentor of talent with a legacy for identifying and developing promising young professionals. He values the “total architect” skillset above a singular focused design or practice management path and shares that perspective in the design studios he teaches at ASU.

This accumulated experience informs a compelling practice trajectory, moving Boyer outside the norms of architectural practice and into the role of real estate developer where his work will continue to add societal value with elegant, simple, and compelling self-directed architecture.
