BOSTON— Jean Carroon FAIA, a Principal at Boston architectural firm of Goody Clancy, will head Boston Society of Architects in 2019. Established in 1867, the BSA/AIA today consists of nearly 4,500 members.
BSA also elected a new Board and governance committee leaders for 2019.
The BSA/AIA Board is composed of 24 members. Elections are held annually. The terms of all elected officers other than the President and First Vice-President/President-elect are three years. The terms for President and First Vice-President are one year.
Jean Carroon is a Principal, heading Design, Preservation and Sustainability at Goody Clancy.
Jean leads Goody Clancy’s preservation practice, focusing on the opportunities inherent in the stewardship and creative reuse of existing buildings to create a healthy resilient world. She leads a team dedicated to helping clients and the public connect historic legacies to current realities and future possibilities. Her approach combines a mastery of history and building technology with a commitment to transforming places – redefining their relevance, utility, and flexibility while sustaining and enhancing essential beauty and value. Jean has been responsible for the restoration or adaptive reuse of a dozen National Historic Landmark buildings. Her book “Sustainable Preservation: Greening Existing Buildings” was published by Wiley in 2010.
She is a frequent speaker, teacher and advocate for creative building reuse and preservation. In 2014, the U. S. Green Building Council named her a LEED Fellow, reflecting her achievements as a LEED professional as well as her contributions to the green building community. Jean’s work and strong advocacy for creative preservation has been recognized through numerous awards, including the Clem Labine Award from Traditional Building, the Distinguished Artist Award from the St. Botolph Club Foundation, and the Paul E. Tsongas Profiles in Preservation Award from Preservation Massachusetts. She has served as Chair of the National AIA Historic Resources Advisory Group.
Jean’s current work includes reuse of historic buildings at the historic St Elizabeth’s campus in Washington DC for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and for the State of Vermont offices in Waterbury, and ongoing work at Trinity Church in the City of Boston. She holds B.A. and M. Arch. from University of Oregon.
