Jennifer Askey


Associate Principal

“We approach each project as a blank canvas and place the people who will experience our spaces at the forefront of each decision. Human by Design means seeking to understand the need of each client and tailoring our designs to have a positive impact on their lives and the environment.”

A lifelong Pittsburgher, Jennifer is passionate about the ongoing transformation of her city from both aesthetic, economic, and human perspectives. That kind of passion has informed more than fifteen years of experience on domestic and international projects, with a focus on workplace, commercial office, and mixed-use projects throughout the Pittsburgh region. Her oversight on projects ensures design quality continuity, documentation coordination, technical execution, and process adherence. Outside of work, Jennifer has served on the City of Pittsburgh’s Planning Commission for the last seven years and is an emeritus board officer of her neighborhood’s community development corporation. She also knows that the best way to see the built world is on your own two feet or behind the handlebars of a bicycle.
