Hi, my name is Jeffrey Zucker. I became an architect because I believe that people can and must create an enduring and positive effect upon the planet. I envision a world that is enhanced by the presence of good design, and it is my mission as an architect to contribute to that vision with each and every project that I am involved with.
My tools are a commitment to the environment, a unique ability to listen, and a passion for excellent design. From my first passive solar house which was dedicated to American Energy Independence in 1976, through four decades of involvement with Arcosanti, to the founding of Northern Arizona’s first Cohousing Community, I have remained steadfast in my commitment to creating Architecture which is ecologically responsible, environmentally responsive, and aesthetically remarkable. If these are causes which call to you, then I invite you to join me in the act of creating Architecture.
Jeffrey L. Zucker brings over 30 years of experience in environmentally sensitive and community-based design to his profession. His initial encounters with architecture came from hands-on work in the construction industry, providing him with several years of practical knowledge. He received his degree in architecture in 1972 from Ohio State University and spent five years apprenticing under the direction of Paolo Soleri as Project Architect and Construction Supervisor at Arcosanti.
Jeff has been active in the field of sustainability and energy efficient design since the early 70's. He designed and built his first solar dwelling, fondly referred to as "the Football," completely out of recycled materials in 1974 for a total cost of $37.43. In 1976, he began construction of the Stone House, a passive solar dwelling featured in “The Cabin Book” by Linda Leigh Paul, published by The Universe Press.
Jeff's first home in Prescott, Arizona, received a citation from the Energy Efficient Building Association (EEBA) for residential construction. More recently, his commitment to conserving resources and fostering community has led him to create the first Co-housing Community in Arizona: Manzanita Village of Prescott. More recently, Jeff was retained to provide sustainable consulting expertise for two large-scale master planned communities in Nevada.
