This weekend, at AIA Houston's annual gala, Jesse Hager of CONTENT Architecture was awarded the Ben Brewer Award for Young Architects. Named in honor of Ben Brewer, FAIA, for distinguished service to the profession and his significant influence on young professionals - this award recognizes excellence in ability, exceptional work, and significant contributions in the practice of architecture by architects who are in their first 10 years of practice.
Since founding the firm in 2009, Jesse and the CONTENT team have completed over 50 architectural projects in three states. He currently serves on the AIA Houston Board of Directors and is Chair of the Small Firm Roundtable. With a passion for critical architectural exploration and thought, Jesse is currently an Adjunct Professor at the University of Houston and has taught design studios at UT-Austin and Prairie View A&M. He is a contributor to Texas Architects Magazine and serves on the TxA Publications Committee. All that, while being a fantastic father to two cute munchkins, we couldn't be more proud here at CONTENT.
