Associate AIA, LEED AP® BD+C
Justin Brooks, a native Oregonian and avid photographer, is passionate about capturing the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest on camera and preserving the environment through low-impact design. His experience designing U.S. embassy and consulate facilities in Cuba, New Zealand, and Laos has given Justin a global perspective, allowing him to infuse the unique characteristics of climate, culture, and place into each design solution. Justin’s project experience includes one of the greenest buildings in the U.S., the Rocky Mountain Institute’s new, net-zero energy Innovation Center; high-performance laboratories for Stanford University’s Biomedical Innovation Building; and a new North American Headquarters for sports apparel leader Pearl Izumi. Justin’s projects are contextually inspired, expressive, and timeless. Over his 13-year professional career, Justin has held leadership and mentoring positions in the design community and at ZGF, including serving on the Advisory Board for the Boston Society of Architects, as well as the Community Design Resource Center, and as co-chair of ZGF’s Young Design Professionals group. Justin received his Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University.
