Matthew B. Ackerman, LEED AIA  Jeffrey L. Zucker, LEED AIA

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, giving him 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, having 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 the 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 Cohousing 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.

On January 1 2005, Jeff and Matt reunited their previous association, creating one of the most experienced sustainable design teams in the southwest.
